Sebastian Serra is a Mexican student doing a dual degree at Stanford’s GSB and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. He is passionate about promoting growth in Mexico through the modernization of the country’s energy industry and the improvement of access to financial technology. With these two interests in mind, Sebastian focused his time at the GSB on analyzing Mexico’s recent energy reform and on building a lending platform for small and medium enterprises in Mexico. This past summer he worked in the office of the CEO of PEMEX, Mexico’s national oil and gas company, as it transitions into a new energy landscape. Last summer, after his first year at the Kennedy School, he worked at the Environmental Defense Fund and the Mexican Department of Energy (SENER). Prior to graduate school, Sebastian worked for three years at Yale University’s Investment Office, the office that invests Yale’s endowment, where he focused primarily on investments in oil and gas. Sebastian received his undergraduate degree in economics at Yale, where he also played soccer on the university’s varsity team.
