I am professor and researcher of International Political Economy in the Center for Development and Regional Planning (Cedeplar) at UFMG. My research focuses on International Development, Public Policy and Latin American studies. Between 2017 and 2019 I was the chair for Undergraduate Studies of the International Economic Relations Program. I hold a PhD in Sociology from UFRJ, with complementary studies in Political Science from MIT. I hold a MA in International Relations, having studied the role of the World Bank in the field of international development, a BA in Social Sciences and a BA in International Relations.  I worked for the Minas Gerais State Government from 2007 to 2015, where I have acquired experience in international negotiation, project management and policy analysis. I am passionate to apply scientific thinking to understanding social behavior and political dynamics. I decompress by doing yoga, meditation and hanging out with inspiring people.
