Dr Andrés Barrios Fernandez's current areas of research are:
- Inequality in the access to higher education and the effect of policies that aim to foster the participation of underrepresented groups. In addition to the study of the direct effects, I am also interested on the externalities they create over different groups.
- School policies and their effects on academic and non-academic outcomes, including how they affect inequality in human capital accumulation.
