Erich Pinzón-Fuchs

I’m currently a postdoc in the economics department at Uniandes in Bogotá (Colombia). I’m particularly interested in the history and methodology of macroeconometric modeling, and in the history of recent economics. After obtaining my Ph.D. at La Sorbonne in March 2017 under the supervision of Annie L. Cot and after spending almost two years at the HOPE Center at Duke, I started my postdoc at Uniandes with Andrés Álvarez and Jimena Hurtado on the history of recent economics. At Uniandes, I also teach a course on the history of economic analysis since August 2017.

I’m the twittermaster for the Societies for the History of Economics (SHoET), which is a joint initiative of the History of Economics Society (HES) and the European Society for the History of Economic Thought (ESHET). I’m also a founding member of the Latin American Society for the History of Economics (ALAHPE), and a member of ALAHPE’s communication committee. I also make part of the Research Group in the History and Methodology of Recent Economics (REhPERE) of the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.

In my spare time, I like to ride my bicycle in the ciclovía of Bogotá, travel, and mostly dance salsa, cumbia, and carranga with Emilie!




About the randomized header images: These are pictures that Emilie 
and I have taken in the last years (in a very amateur way). 
Most pictures were taken in Colombia. The city is downtown Bogotá, 
viewed from the the historic distric of La Candelaria. There are also
several pictures from Chingaza National Park, which is a special 
"páramo" eco-system with its beautiful "frailejones." The picture with
the cows is the "Cocora Valley," and the other very green mountains 
are El Sisga, close to Bogotá. The pictures with the pines are from 
Colorado, as is also the rocky one, of course. The desert is the 
beautiful and surprising Atacama Desert in Chile.
