Lecturer in Economics at Royal Holloway, University of London. Affiliated with NOVAFRICA.

Previously: PhD student in Economics at Nova SBE and visiting at UC Berkeley.

I work on Development Economics with a focus on Political Economy and Social Networks.

Currently, I am working on civil conflict in the north of Mozambique. This is a setting of low quality of institutions, rich in natural resources and with a recent wave of religious extremism.
