Jorge Luis García

Esther and T.W. Schultz Fellow in the Department of Economics, University of Chicago

My name is Jorge Luis García. I am a 2015-2016 Esther and T.W. Schultz Fellow in the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago. I graduated summa cum laude and as valedictorian from CIDE (Mexico) in 2010 with a B.A. in Economics. I visited the University of Chicago in the winter and spring of 2010 as an undergraduate student and received and M.A. in Economics from this university in 2012. I am a fifth year Ph.D. student.

My research interests include family economics, human capital formation and accumulation, and the quantitative study of socio-economic inequality. My current work focuses in two areas: (i) formal and informal labour and credit markets; (ii) early childhood human capital formation and accumulation. The main objective of my research is to understand how market structures and investment choices determine life-cycle and cross-sectional inequality.
