Professor of Economics

University of São Paulo

Welcome to my website!


I am Luis Meloni, an assistant professor of Economics at the University of São Paulo (FEA-USP). My research spans political economy, the economics of education, and public policy-related issues.

Before joining São Paulo University, I have been a research fellow at the São Paulo School of Economics (EESP-FGV) and a Marie Currie PODER-CEPR Research Fellow at Bocconi University.


Currently, I have two main research agendas. In the field of education, I focus on the impact of school leadership on student achievement in Brazil. In public economics, my research centers on understanding the determinants of efficiency in public procurement. Additionally, I have a third research agenda focused on political economy and media, an area of personal interest and passion. You can find detailed information about my ongoing projects and working papers on the research page.

Feel free to reach out with any questions or opportunities for collaboration.

Thanks for visiting!
