Ana Corbacho, co-editor of the 2013 Development in the Americas report, joined the Inter-American Development Bank in 2010 as the Sector Economic Advisor responsible for research and dissemination in the Institutions for Development Sector.

Prior to this position, she was at the International Monetary Fund where she began as a desk economist for Bulgaria and a fiscal economist for Honduras. She quickly rose through the Fiscal Affairs Department and was eventually named Deputy Division Chief of the Western Hemisphere Department, which prepares the IMF’s twice-yearly Regional Economic Outlook for the Western Hemisphere.

She has worked primarily on emerging markets in Eastern Europe and Latin America. Her areas of expertise include macroeconomic and fiscal policy analysis, fiscal institutions and public infrastructure financing, public-private partnerships, household survey analysis, poverty and income distribution and crime and violence. She has been a fellow at Columbia University, the Organization of American States, the Bradley Foundation, and the Public Policy Consortium.

She holds a PhD in economics (with distinction) from Columbia University in New York and a Licentiate in economics (summa cum laude) from the Universidad de San Andrés in Buenos Aires.
