I am a Development Economist and Public Policy Leader.
Over the course of my professional career, I have gained experience working for Governments, Parliament and International Organizations.
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.
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 several 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, and consult for organizations committed to have impact — or evaluate their impact.
