I joined the CEP in January 2019. I currently contribute to research projects on the economics of innovation and technological change, as well as policy issues related to the UK's productivity puzzle, sustainable growth and recovery from Covid-19. I obtained a master's degree in Social and Public Policy (with Distinction) at the LSE in 2019 and a bachelor's degree in Economics at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) in 2017.

Current areas of research include:

  • Economics of innovation and technological change: Mapping the production, diffusion and drivers of future technologies; Technology adoption amongst SMEs.
  • Economics of ""net-zero"": Economic policies to facilitate the transition to a ""net-zero-emission economy"", maximising sustainable growth opportunities and minimising the costs that it will entail.
