I am the director of the Bissau Economics Lab, in collaboration with the Economics department of the Universidade Lusófona da Guiné-Bissau.
My research focuses on Development and Experimental Economics. Most recently I am studying the relationship between teams' diversity, discrimination and performance, and the impact of communicating live price information to cashew farmers in West Africa.
I hold a PhD in Economics from the European University Institute in Florence. I spent the last two years as an ODI fellow in Guinea-Bissau, and I have worked for the ILO, the WB and UNDRR.
