I grew up between Brazil, the United States, and France, and started my career in policy work at the Climate Investment Funds (a Trust Fund of the World Bank) before starting my PhD in political economy in Lausanne. I am interested in political economy, development economics, and climate change economics, all from a micro perspective. I am currently running a field experiment in Bogotá, and am exploring different facets of the effects of climate change on conflict and development.

I hold a BSc. in Economics from the University of São Paulo (Brazil) and an MSc. in Environmental and Natural Ressource Economics from the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). My research interests lie mainly in climate policy design and energy market regulation, with a focus on applied microeconomic theory.

Language lover, keen baker, voracious taveller and recent runner. I'm at my happiest on a long walk or sharing a beer with good friends.
