Alfonso research interests include the use and development of methods for the estimation of nonlinear econometric models for cross-section and panel data and its applications to demographic, education, health, and labour economics. Recently he has worked on topics relating longitudinal survey design and experimental economics; with emphasis in sampling and experimental design. In particular, in 2017 he launched, along a group of other researchers, the Aguascalientes Longitudinal Study of Child Development (EDNA); which is study of 1,000 children in 100 schools who are a representative sample of the cohort of children that started first grade of primary education in August 2016 at a public school of Aguascalientes, Mexico.
