About my research

Throughout my studies both in EPOG+ and at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), I manifested a strong interest in the intersection between International Macroeconomics and Development due to the important constraints posed to national development in Brazil. Delving deeper into these fields, in 2017 I joined LabChina - a research group on Chinese Political Economy - where I got first introduced to the world of heterodox economics and its different approaches to development. Since then, I decided to specialise in development studies focusing on green finance and development cooperation in the BRICS countries.
