I am an assistant professor at FGV-EBAPE (Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration of the Getulio Vargas Foundation). I specialize in quantitative methods applied to social and behavioral sciences and I am passionate about teaching methods courses.
My research is focused on behavioral change, especially related to health, including ways to foster blood donation and improve eating habits of children and adolescents. More recently, I have worked on covid-19 protective behavior and related non-pharmaceutical interventions. I am also interested in how social class shapes behavior related to pro-sociality, price sensitivity and vaccination.
