I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Lisbon’s Institute of Social Sciences (ICS) developing the REGROWTH project: “How a Nation is Born: Reconstructing Four Centuries of Brazilian Economic Growth.”

I was previously a research affiliate at the University of Brasilia’s Department of Economics and an advisor at the Research Department of the Federal Labor Prosecution Office (MPT) in Brazil and at SmartLab, a joint initiative of the MPT and the International Labor Organization.

I have a doctoral degree in economics from the University of Brasilia, with a one-year period as visiting scholar (with class credit) at Harvard University. My dissertation was selected as one of the best in the department in the last four-year period.

My research interests are related to economic history, political economy, and economic development.
