Beatriz is from São
Paulo, Brazil. She earned a BA in Journalism from Faculdade Cásper Líbero in
2005 and a graduate degree in International Economic Negotiations from São
Paulo State University in 2010. Most recently, she received a MA in Political
Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014, with a
concentration in Comparative Politics and Public Policy. At UNC, she was also a
Rotary Peace Fellow at the Duke/UNC Rotary Peace Center. Beatriz' dissertation
explores how legislative goals
shape policy processes in Brazil and Mexico. In particular, she aims to explain
accounts for policy activity in countries where reelection rates are
comparatively low. Beatriz is a part of the Brazilian
Policy Agendas project, which
investigates trends in policymaking across time in the country. The project
integrates the Comparative Agendas Project. Other works include a co-authored paper on
budgeting in authoritarian and democratic regimes (published at the Journal of
European Public Policy) and a working paper on the relationship between
financial resources and framing.
