Short Bio

Sérgio Pinto is a PhD student at the University of Maryland and his primary research interests are income inequality, subjective well-being, and labor economics.

His current work spans different subject areas and geographies, covering both the US and Portugal. Together with his advisor, Carol Graham, he is working on (i) race and income-based heterogeneities in subjective well-being in the US and how they map into premature mortality trends, (ii) which factors matter most for well-being and how well-being can matter for policy, and (iii) the causal well-being impact of recent US presidential elections. In Portugal, his work focuses on a number of topics related to labor markets and inequality.

Prior to starting his PhD, Sérgio worked at the World Bank, as well as in the public and private sector in Portugal. He holds a MPP from the University of Maryland, a postgraduate certificate in Economics and Public Policies from ISCTE-IUL and a BA in Business Administration from UCP.
