Rodrigo Bustamente

Rodrigo Bustamante is a researcher at SEO’s Global Economics cluster. He has worked as macroeconomic analyst, program evaluator, and monitoring & evaluation specialist. Rodrigo has worked closely with a variety of organisations, including non-profits, international cooperation agencies, and private foundations. Rodrigo has extensive experience in Latin America—some countries include Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico; and he has also evaluated development programmes in Africa. Frequent themes in Rodrigo’s work include education, job training, employment, and private-sector development.

Through his work, Rodrigo has developed strong skills in mixed-methods. As part of his work, he has supported many organisations to develop their monitoring & evaluation frameworks to measure the impact of their initiatives and build a culture of evidence. He has had the opportunity to lead the design of quasi-experimental evaluations. Other strengths include data analysis and visualization.

Rodrigo studied economics at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and  a Research M.A. in economics and philosophy at Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands. During his graduate studies, Rodrigo delved into the philosophical and methodological challenges of the evidence-based movement in economics, and how they can be overcome. As an avid language learner, he tries to constantly expand his ability to communicate with those around him.
