I am assistant professor at Insper Institute of Education and Research, São Paulo, Brazil, where I investigate political representation in the developing world. My work on modular parties has been recently published at the American Journal of Political Science. My research is largely data driven, employing transparent, yet rigorous empirical methods to uncover causal relationships.
Before joining Insper, I received a Ph.D. In Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley. Before that, I received an MS in Economics from the School of Economics of São Paulo - Fundação Getúlio Vargas, and a BA in Economics from the University of São Paulo. I also hold an MA in Political Science from UC Berkeley. Also, I am a non-resident research associate of the Center on the Politics of Development, Berkeley, and a former Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST).
