Short CV

- Bosco is currently currently a researcher for the ESSE project, examining the role of social equity and fairness in the design of Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) schemes. The methodologies he uses for his research include: econometric and statistical analyses, deliberative valuation methods, field experiments, and surveys. Additionally, he has experience working in other research areas such as ecological discounting and environmental finance mechanisms such as green bonds. He has carried out field work in Colombia, working with indigenous communities in the municipality of Cumbal looking for sustainable solutions to improve water management in the paramo ecosystem.

- He completed his MSc in Environmental Economics & Climate Change at the London School of Economics (UK) in 2015. Before that, he obtained two bachelor's degrees in Economics and Environmental Analysis & Policy from Boston University (USA).

- In his master's dissertation, he calculated the amount of CO2 abated by five Northern European countries after implementing carbon taxes in the early 1990s. The analysis was done using the synthetic control method, a novel statistical technique developed by Abadie and Gardeazabal (2003).

- He worked as a strategy consultant for Santander Bank for two years, carrying out market studies in Spain and the UK.

- Previously, he interned at DARA, an international non-profit committed to improving the quality and effectiveness of aid for vulnerable populations suffering from conflict, disasters, and climate change.

- He also interned at private equity fund Ambar Capital y Expansión, where he helped develop Vivergi, one of the world's largest social impact venture capital funds.
