Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Student in Economics, 2018-Present
As a second-year Economics PhD student, I am studying applied microeconomics, including industrial organization and labor economics. I am also serving as a teaching assistant for ECON 701 and 704, the core microeconomic theory sequence for first-year Economics PhD students.

Prior to coming to Duke, my research focused on economic development in Brazil. I am currently continuing and extending this research. I also did research in philosophy, focusing on political philosophy and applied ethics.

Finally, I currently serve on the Economics Graduate Student Council.
