Since 2000, I have been a member of the Brazilian federal career Especialistas em Políticas Públicas e Gestão Governamental, which could be translated as Specialist in Public Policy and Government Management, a civil servant career with a certain correspondence to the Senior Executive Service in the USA. Throughout my career I have had positions at the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of the Chief of Staff of the Presidency of the Republic, and the National Institute for Educational Studies and Research (INEP). Most of my recent work draws upon the analysis of large data sets. After my Ph.D in Economics (January 2016), I returned to INEP and started a research agenda focusing on: (i) the effects of raising teacher salary on students’ proficiency and on teaching career attractiveness; (ii) teacher effectiveness; and (iii) the determinants of the inequality of students’ educational outcomes.
