Welcome to my website! I am a 6th year PhD candidate in Economics at Northwestern University (CV). I am on SSRN, Google Scholar, and Twitter.

My research is in Development, Political Economy, and Environmental Economics, with an agenda on decentralization, public service delivery, deforestation, and racial inequality.

I am joining the Economics department at PUC-Rio as an assistant professor starting in August 2021.

Office hours: Zoom appointments booked online or by email. If the above slots don’t work for you, please email me to set up a meeting.

I have co-founded Base dos Dados, an open data repository and search engine for Brazil. It facilitates data work for academics, journalists, policy makers, and developers.
