about me | mini bio

I am an associate professor and founder of the School of International Relations at FGV. My research interests include the politics of foreign policy, strategic interaction in diplomatic communications, public opinion and foreign policy, political corruption in world politics and, more broadly, international security and qualitative methods. I completed my doctorate at Oxford University, and have held visiting positions at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the Council on Foreign Relations, the LSE, and King’s College London.

I am also a regular commentator on Brazilian politics and foreign affairs through  outlets such as the New York Times, the Financial Times, and Foreign Affairs. In the period 2012-19 I was the foreign-policy columnist at Folha de S. Paulo, Brazil's leading daily newspaper.
