Welcome to my webpage. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Politics and in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. I am also a Fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance, at the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics and at the Program in Latin American Studies. I teach courses and conduct research on international and comparative political economy, the politics of income redistribution, and Latin American political economy. Prior to entering academic life, I worked as a business consultant, as a sell-side financial analyst, and also for the Rio de Janeiro state government, where I managed projects funded by international financial institutions.
