Curriculum Vitae

Assistant Professor of Economics & Political Science

Prof. Unda-Gutierrez is working on a project oriented to explain variations in tax revenue, spending composition and inter-governmental transfers in Mexican municipalities. The project combines field research evidence with analysis of originally constructed datasets that include fiscal data, electoral results, economic indicators, and variables relating the quality of municipal services and citizen participation in local policymaking. The project is oriented not only to producing academic publications, but also to informing debates about a policy area in urgent need of attention in Mexico, given notable deficiencies in financial management on the local level in the aftermath of decentralization reforms in the late twentieth century.
