Hello! I'm Bruno.
As a legislative advisor at the Federal Senate of Brazil, I am
passionate about data exploration as a tool to inform legislative proposals.
I am a firm believer in evidence-based public policy and see it as a primary driver to shape a progressive society.
To get relevant insights for my work, I analyze data in R and Python.
During my master's degree, I had the privilege of working at the Hertie School Data Science Lab in Berlin.
In my role as a teaching assistant, I provided consultations on R, data visualization, and causal inference, further deepening my understanding and skill set in these areas.
In my free time, apart from exploring data, I like exploring
new places and cultures. Reading, gaming, history and jogging are also my hobbies. I am also the proud creator of Coding the Past
a blog designed to educate other social scientists about data science.
In 2023, I published my Master thesis Better Incentives, Better Marks: A Synthetic Control Evaluation of the Educational Policies in Ceará, Brazil.
This piece of work captures my views about education policies and their implications. Below you can find more about my projects and research.
