Hey there! I'm Juan (ファン), a researcher at DSOC's Social Science Team. Since this is probably the first time you read me, I thought of briefly introducing myself.
I was born in El Salvador, Central America, which explains why you'll find some Español here and there in my posts. I majored in Economics when studying the undergrad back at home, then came to Japan in 2011, graduated from the PhD in Economics and joined Sansan in early 2019. Most of my research concentrates on Labor and Education Economics, both in Japan and in Developing countries. As it turns out I also worked as a software engineer in the Fintech Industry for almost three years, and spent most of my time figuring out why my tests are failing, why my Scala code doesn't compile and why CSS hates me... you know, programmer stuff. Currently I work mostly on app development and doing research on business networks formation.
