I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Economics at UC Santa Barbara. I hold a BA and a MA in Economics from the São Paulo School of Economics - Fundação Getúlio Vargas. I am originally from São Paulo, Brazil. My primary research interests are Environmental Economics, Demographics and Macroeconomics. My current research focuses on the macroeconomic and demographic effects of environmental shocks, in particular volcanic eruptions. Previously to my Ph.D I have worked in the asset management and insurance industries.
