Vanderbilt University / Research Associate - FGV/Brazil

Based in

United States
North America

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Political Science and a Graduate Research Affiliate at the Latin America Public Opinion Project (LAPOP) at Vanderbilt University. Additionally, I am a Research Associate at the School of International Relations at Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) in Brazil.

My research focuses on comparative and environmental politics, specifically on political behavior, political elites, and public opinion in developing countries. The core of my research explores the unintended consequences of environmental policies on the strategies and incentives of political elites. This includes examining how the adoption of environmental policies affects the quality of representation and the functioning of local political institutions. Additionally, I am broadly interested in understanding the determinants of individuals’ beliefs, attitudes, and behavior toward climate change and how public opinion in developing countries reacts to foreign climate shaming.
