Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Collaborative Research Center SFB 884 “Political Economy of Reforms” at the University of Mannheim, Germany. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Texas A&M University, USA, and my master's degree in Political Science from the University of São Paulo, Brazil.
My main research agenda is on comparative political institutions, with an emphasis on coalition governments, legislative studies, and executive-legislative relations. In addition, I am developing research at the intersection between coalition governments and voter behavior, and in comparative political economy. My research has been published or is forthcoming in the Journal of Politics, Politics, Groups, and Identities, and the Brazilian Political Science Review, as well as in an edited volume published by Sage Publications.
