Research and work

Here you will find information about my professional experience.

I have been involved in range of research projects related to health politics and public policy in collaboration with leading institutions in Brazil, the UK and the USA. Currently, I am interested in the intersection between health policy and trade policy, particularly in terms of pharmaceutical regulation.

My academic interests are:

Lobbying - how public policies influence social-political actors (and vice-versa);
Policy change and stability - why and how institutions/public policies change;
Federalism - how intergovernmental relations influence politics and public policies.
