Hi, Welcome to my website!

I am a Ph.D Candiate in the Department of Economics at The University of Oklahoma, Norman-OK, USA. My work is primarily focused on Applied Microeconomics in Development and Labor Economics, with a focus on urban economics, economics of crime and migration. Currently, my research focus primarily on the developing world, specially on a huge amount of relatively unexplored high quality data from Brazil, an emerging market economy, home to approximately 3% of the world’s population.

With my work, I am interested in providing resources that support public policies in order to reduce inequality, create opportunities and generate social and economic development (understood in terms of Amartya Sen as the “real” freedom people can enjoy both economically and socially).

Besides my doctorate, I also hold a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations (2012) and Economics (2013). Both from Facamp, Campinas-SP, Brazil. I am currently a member of the Population Association of America (PAA), the Southern Economic Association (SEA), and the Royal Economic Society (RES).

I am on the Economics Job Market during the 2021-2022 year and available for interviews.
