m1Welcome to my website. I’m a PhD student in the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis.  My research interests are political representation, elite behavior, and experimental research.

Previously I took an undergraduate degree in Economics at the University of Porto, and a master in Political Science at the University of Lisbon, with a dissertation on poll accuracy in Portuguese presidential elections. In the meanwhile I worked as a journalist and environmental consultant. Since 2013 I am collaborating with POPSTAR, a research project that analyses the relationship between public opinion surveys and online political communication.
