I am an Assistant Professor of the School of International Relations at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) in Brazil. My research investigates how institutions and representation affect collective action problems in democratic societies. I use formal models and experimental analysis to study issues in Comparative Political Economy, Comparative Politics, Environmental Politics, and Representation.

On this website, you will find links to my CV, publications, working papers, and programming codes.
