I currently hold a position as an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) at NovaSBE and am currently teaching Macroeconomics in the BSc’s in Economics and Business Administration. I am also affiliated as a researcher at the Center for Economics and Finance (CEF.UP) at the Faculty of Economics, University of Porto, under a research grant for post-doctoral studies from the Foundation for Science and Technology. I co-organize the monthly Lisbon Macro Workshop, joint with Luis Costa (ISEG) and Catarina Reis (UC Lisbon) and am associate editor of “Notas Económicas“, the peer-reviewed economics journal from my alma mater, U Coimbra. I also created and maintain, together with João B. Duarte, the MacroNova group.
I have been involved in executive education programs at Nova SBE, for both the General Management Program (CGG), Applied Management Program (PGA) and customized programs offered on-site. I also participate in a joint program with the Nova’s Faculty of Sciences and Technology (“Water Technology and Management” program, already in its 4th edition) and with the Portuguese Football Association (Summer School “Football is much more than 90m!” and Easter School “There Are no Great Tactics Without Great Talents”). The contents typically focus on Microeconomics and Macroeconomics for Managers. I have been involved in consulting projects at Economics for Policy and Nova Finance Center, knowledge centers at Nova SBE, in the topics of financial literacy, the economic impact of public infrastructure projects, and banking and finance and also for Fundação Francisco Manuel dos Santos.
Previously I was a Jean Monet Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies – European University Institute, Lecturer at Stockholm University, visiting student at the University of Minnesota, University of Porto and research intern at the European Central Bank. I also taught in the PhD in Economics program at the U Zurich and the MSc in Economics program at the U Edingburgh.

In particular, I have published articles in scientific journals with peer-review in the below fields:
