Welcome to my website! My name is Gabriel, and I'm a third-year Ph.D. candidate and research fellow at the Political Economy Research Institute at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU). I am originally from Manaus - a gorgeous city in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon. I moved to the U.S. in 2016 to pursue my undergraduate education. In 2020, I earned my B.A. in Economics at Wake Forest University, and in 2021 I earned my M.A. in Economics at MTSU. I previously worked as a Research Assistant at the Wake Forest University School of Law. Currently, I work as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for the Jennings A. Jones College of Business, teaching Principles of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. My research interest lies at the intersection of historical political economy and intellectual history.
