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.
