I am an impact-driven leader and an academic passionate to innovate. Problem solver, independent thinker, and committed to evidence-based solutions.
Over the course of my professional career, I have gained experience working for Governments, Parliament and International Organizations in the areas of international development, economic policy and global health.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics (Magna Cum Laude) from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva. My dissertation was about Development Economics using Brazil as a case study. Currently, I am also a Ph.D. candidate in Global Health at the University of Geneva.
I hold an MPA degree in Economic Policy Management from Columbia University, and I concluded my undergraduate studies in Political Science (University of Sao Paulo) and Business Administration (Getulio Vargas Foundation).
In Brazil, I have co-founded a few nationwide grassroots movements to promote civic engagement and shape the political debate. I was columnist of Nexo, an innovative news outlet.
Currently, I live in Zurich, Switzerland, where I research and consult for organizations committed to have impact — or evaluate their impact.
