Juan Pablo Chauvin


Welcome!  I am an Economist at the Research Department of the Inter-American Development Bank. I am also an Affiliated Associate at the Center for International Development at Harvard. My research fields are Urban, Development and Labor Economics. I study cities and regions in developing countries, with a focus on understanding the connections between labor markets, housing markets, and the industry composition of places.  

In the past, I have been Instructor and Teaching Fellow in Economics and Statistics at the Harvard Kennedy School, and have held teaching positions at Ecuadorian universities. I have also been a consultant with the German Technical Cooperation Agency (GiZ), the World Bank, the OECD, and the private sector; advising local, regional and national governments on economic development and diversification policies in South America, Asia, the MENA region and South-East Europe.
