I am a Doctor of Economics from University of Brasília (UnB) since September 2012. I also have a bachelor's degree in Economics from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS, 2007) and a master's degree in Economics from University of Brasília (UnB, 2010).
I am currently 31 years old. I have worked in Caixa Econômica Federal from 2005 to 2008 in Porto Alegre (RS), mainly with credit analysis in activities such as debt acquisitions from another banks, credit qualification from FCVS (Fundo de Compensação de Variação Salarial) and credit management from FIES (Fundo de Financiamento Estudantil). I have moved to Brasília in 2008 to pursue a master's degree in Economics at UnB and end up with a doctoral degree. During this time I worked mainly with financial econometrics under the supervision of José Guilherme de Lara Resende. In 2011 I got back to Porto Alegre as a lecturer from the Department of Economics at UFRGS, teaching mostly introductory economics. In late 2012 I joined the Department of Economics and the Graduate Program of PPGOM, both at Federal University of Pelotas (UFPel). In 2014 I also spent some time at EESP/FGV as a postdoctoral researcher.
In my current job I am teaching basic statistics, linear algebra and finance for undergraduates and time series and recursive macroeconomics for graduates. My research expertise is mainly in time series analysis, finance, banking and recursive macroeconomics, but I am also interested in everything that has to do with data analysis. I have published articles in journal such as the Latin American Business Review, Brazilian Review of Finance, Revista Brasileira de Economia, Revista Brasileira de Economia de Empresas, and I have revised articles for journals such as Journal of Banking and Finance, Environment, Development and Sustainability, Brazilian Review of Finance and others.
