Professional Overview

Academic C.V. (PDF)

I am father of two, husband, and Associate Professor of Government at the Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration, Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV-EBAPE) in Rio de Janeiro. I also founded and head FGV’s Public Transparency Program, a collaboration between FGV-EBAPE and FGV’s School of Law. 

I work on issues related to the measurement, determinants, politics, and impacts of transparency, information, privacy (anonymity, surveillance), media, corruption, open government, and representation. Most of my students are federal public servants, with whom I co-author policy-relevant research.

At FGV-EBAPE, I intermittently teach three courses in four different tracks:

  • Comparative Qualitative Methods (academic-track MA and PhD)
  • Transparency and Good Governance (academic-track MA and PhD; Master’s in Management, and Professional-track Master’s of Public Administration)
  • Public Policy (Professional-track Master’s of Public Administration).

I am grateful for the opportunity to work with exceptional students, in an institution of excellence, alongside the best Government faculty in Brazil.
