My name is Javier Romero Haaker. I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Duke University.

My research interests are Development Economics, Economic Demography, Health, and Political Economy. I apply both quasi-experimental and experimental methods in my research.

Before joining Duke, I co-founded a non-profit organization that works on development projects in the Amazons. I was an Economist at the Central Bank of Peru and a Senior Research Assistant at Universidad de Piura.

I am currently on the job market and will be available for interviews at the EEA Job Market Meeting in Naples and the ASSA 2019 Meeting in Atlanta.
