I’m a PhD in Public Administration and Government at Fundação Getulio Vargas (EAESP FGV), researcher at FGV EESP CLEAR, and founder at LAPP (Public Policy and Social Programs Lab), a platform that seeks to gather, organize and provide straightforward information (causal evidence) on the impacts of public policy and social programs that went under rigorous evaluation worldwide. I previously worked as graduate research assistant at IEPS and at CEPESP/FGV, and as a short-term consultant at IADB. I also hold a bachelor’s degree from the São Paulo School of Economics (EESP/FGV) and a master’s degree from Tilburg University, all in economics. I truly believe that evidence-informed decision-making is the key to the development and strengthening of public policies and to positively impact the livelihoods of those who need the most.

Research Interests: policy impact evaluation, health and demographic economics, public health
