About Andrés Barroso Chavez

Andrés is a Systems Operation Specialist, BIP Lab, where he manages the student research assistant team and ensures compliance of research activities with institutional, state and federal regulatory policies, procedures, directives and mandates. He is passionate about the intersection between education and policy and how this path can positively impact the public sphere.

Before joining the BIP Lab in 2019, Andrés worked in research, economic and political advisory and public policy consulting in Mexico for more than 7 years, focusing primarily on the financial inclusion efforts to reduce poverty by reducing the opportunity gap through inclusive economic development. From the public sector at the Mexican Senate, the private sphere as a public policy consultant, or the non-profit sector as a coordinator of volunteers in rural communities, he is always seeking to be a factor of change.

Andrés holds a Master of Public Policy from the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago and earned his BA in Political Science at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in Mexico City.
