My research focuses on Wavelet Analysis, Macroeconomic Dynamics, and Political Economy (voting behavior).
I finished my Economics Ph.D. in 2005, at Cornell University. I studied under the supervision of Karl Shell (chair), Yi Wen, Nicholas Kiefer, and Yongmiao Hong. Before going to Cornell, I completed my Master's studies at the University of Porto. Francisco Louçã was my thesis supervisor. My undergraduate studies were pursued at the University of Coimbra. I have fond memories of all these three universities.
Since my return to Portugal in 2005, I have taught many courses, however, it seems that I have settled in for Macroeconomics courses.
On the right-hand side, you can find links to my blog "A destreza das dúvidas", to my research, which includes a specific page fully devoted to Wavelet Analysis, to my vitae (pdf), to some friends, to my supervisors, and to some of my co-authors.
