About me

Hi, welcome to my personal website! 

I am a 6th year Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at Brown University. I study how the disruption caused by migration, forced displacement and conflict affects human behavior. 

I am leading several field experiments in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, focusing on the socioeconomic integration of internally displaced persons amid the ongoing conflict affecting the region. My work is being supported by the International Growth Centre and the J-PAL Crime and Violence Initiative. My research has been featured in the World Bank Development Impact Blog, newspaper Expresso (in Portuguese) and Voice of America (TV interview in Portuguese).

I will be joining the Department of Economics of ISEG - University of Lisbon as an Assistant Professor in September 2024.

Thank you for visiting!
