I am a researcher at the University of S√£o Paulo, Brazil, at the Center for Organization Studies (CORS), which belongs to the faculty of Economics and Business Administration.

My main areas of research are Development Economics and Public Policy, and also Operations Research. I conduct theoretical and empirical projects on bureaucracy and bureaucracy reform, corruption and intermediaries, the informal economy, and methods for planning and evaluating the spatial access to public services.

These projects have been financed by Handelsbanken, Vetenskapsrådet and the Hierta Foundation (Sweden), FNRS and the National Bank (Belgium), and the European Commission, which is gratefully acknowledged.
