I am a PhD student in the Department of Economics at Colorado State University. Before coming to CSU, I received my masters’ degree from the Department of Economics at the University of São Paulo (USP) in 2020, where I also got my bachelors’ degree in 2018.

My primary research interests focus on international trade and economic development. My academic work has been published in Structural Change and Economic Dynamics and you can find more information about ongoing projects in my personal website.
