About Me

I am a Doctoral Candidate and Teaching Assistant at Nova School of Business and Economics. My main research interest is Applied Microeconomic Theory, focusing particularly on Asymmetric Information and Moral Hazard problems. In particular, I have worked on Auctions, Contract Theory, and Matching. Currently, I am working on a Matching project.

During my career besides academia, I have worked as Economist and Consultant. During my consulting work with Professor Ingemar Dierickx, I developed a deep interest in programming, especially in Java and Matlab/Octave, trying to simplify complex programs to intuitive and easy to set up graphical interfaces. It proved an excellent learning and teaching tool.

During my free time, I enjoy listening to the Rock and Blues legends, and (attempt) to emulate the big names of past decades with my electric and acoustic guitars.
