Professor of Economics

University of São Paulo

Welcome to my website!

I am an assistant professor of economics at São Paulo University (FEA-USP), interested in political economy, the economics of education, and public policy-related issues.


Currently, my research focuses mainly on the political economy of mass media in developing countries and on the legacies of autocratic regimes.


Before joining São Paulo University, I have been a post-doc research fellow at São Paulo School of Economics (EESP-FGV) and a CEPR research fellow at Bocconi University.

Thanks for visiting!
