I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Pittsburgh‘s Department of Political Science. My subfields are Comparative Politics and Political Behavior. I am interested in public policy, political parties, and ideologies. Some of my work was already published in journals as Revista de Sociologia e Política, Journal of International Studies, Revista Economia & Gestão, Conjuntura Internacional, Conjuntura Global, and Revista de Meio Ambiente e Sustentabilidade.
In the recent past, I concluded a Master in Public Economics, Law, and Politics at the Leuphana Universität Lüneburg (Germany) with funding from the Helmut Schmidt Program (DAAD). I also graduated at the Master in Public Management and Society from the Universidade Federal de Alfenas (Brazil) and I hold a Bachelor in Economics from the Universidade Federal de São João del-Rei (Brazil).
I worked as an adjunct lecturer at the Instituto Federal de São Paulo (Brazil), where I taught introductory courses of Economics, Financial Management, and Business Administration. I was also an adjunct at a Master in Economics offered by the Centro de Estudios Manuel Ayau (Spain) and the Universidad Francisco Marroquín (Guatemala), where I taught a course on Public Policy.
Outside of academia, I was the Program Manager for Latin America and Treasurer of the International Federation of Liberal Youth, an umbrella organization present in more than 70 countries since 1947. There, I directly contributed to raising over € 250.000,00 from private and public sources, as the European Union and the Council of Europe.
