Germán (/ˈher-man/) was born in Argentina and raised in Buenos Aires and Mexico City. He is a third year PhD student in Economics, interested in behavioral and public economics. His current research explores the effectiveness of social incentives in encouraging prosocial behavior. Prior to attending Cornell, Germán worked as a research analyst at the World Bank in Washington D.C., and as an analyst at the Ministry of Economics in Buenos Aires. Germán holds a B.A. and M.A. in Economics from the Universidad Nacional de La Plata.

When he is not in Uris Hall reading papers and coding, he enjoys listening to podcasts (Freakonomics and This American Life are among his favorites), watching Netflix, and running in Cass and Stewart Parks. His favorite sports team is River Plate, and he is always up for a cup of coffee or some mate (Argentinean tea).
