Julio Rodríguez

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Julio Rodríguez is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the What Works Hub for Global Education at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford. His research lies at the intersection of education and labor economics, with a particular interest in implementing quantitative causal inference methods to study segregation and inequality in the educational system. He is also keen on using administrative data to better understand the impact of education on long-term outcomes, such as labor market results and social mobility. Additionally, he is interested in studying algorithmic systems that support decision-making processes and their consequences on equity and fairness.

Julio holds an MPhil and a PhD in Economics and Education from Columbia University. Previously, he obtained a BA in Economics and an MA in Economic Analysis from Universidad de Chile. Before his doctoral studies, Julio was a research fellow and consultant for the Social Sector of the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB). He conducted quantitative research on the provision of public services for women and indigenous people in Latin American and Caribbean countries, along with teacher policies and incentive schemes, and financing education through vouchers.
