My main area of interest is Finance, especially Behavior Finance, Risk Management, Derivative Pricing and Performance Evaluation. During the Master studies, my research was focused in derivative pricing, more specifically on the IDI option from the Brazilian Deriative Exchange (BM&F). During the PhD studies, my research was focused on Behavior Finance, altough some research in risk management was also undertaken. Since I work for the Risk Management area for monetary policy in the Central Bank of Brazil, I have interest and papers published in this area also. Currently, my research is in the area of volatility risk premia, short-selling and monetary policy.
