PhD in International Relations and Political Science, University of São Paulo (USP) – Institute of International Relations (IRI)Currently, I hold a postdoctoral position at the Center of International Negotiations Studies

Research Interest and Dissertation

My research interests lie at the intersection of political science and international relations; more specifically, between comparative politics and international political economy. In my dissertation, I attempt to link both fields when analyzing the impact of domestic institutions on international cooperation and trade policy.
