  • Media & Information


I am a telecom/internet policy expert currently on leave to pursue Ph.D. studies in Information & Media at Michigan State University, focused on internet and telecom economic issues. I work as Specialist on Regulatory Affairs at the National Telecommunications Agency – ANATEL, the Brazilian telecommunications regulatory authority, as well as serve as Research Assistant at the Quello Center for Telecommunication Management and Law.

My research interests relate to the economic implications of the “internet platformization”. More specifically, I research the short and long-run economic impacts of the internet platforms on digital markets structures and performance, and the implications for competition and antitrust policy. Also, I am interested in understanding how and to what extent such process affects social welfare and how policy regimes can potentiate or mitigate these impacts.

I have more than 10 years of experience in the ICT market on a national and international level. I have been focusing my career in providing value-added solutions to governments and companies worldwide based on efficiency, reliability and economic rationality principles, especially by elaborating public policy and regulatory solutions based on data science and analytics. Throughout the years, I have been actively speaking and contributing to the debate on ICT policy and regulation at the Organization of American States (OAS) as well as in several working groups of the United Nations telecom specialized agency (ITU), where I currently am Vice-chairman and rapporteur for operational and regulatory service quality related matters.

I hold a Bachelor Degree in Communication Networks Engineering, a Master Degree in Public Policy and Economic Development, as well as a MBA with an emphasis in Project Management.
