PhD Track Research Interests

Rómulo is an enthusiastic PhD Candidate in Finance at the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University Rotterdam. Before the start of his PhD, Rómulo completed a MPhil in Economics at the Tinbergen Institute, a MSc in Finance at RSM and a BSc in Management at NOVA School of Business and Economics.  Rómulo has received awards such as a Best Master Thesis Award, a Citizenship Award and scholarships to participate in workshops at Oxford University and Northwestern University.  He is one of the founders of NOVA University’s Debate Club, has worked in Microfinance in India and did an exchange semester in South Korea.

Rómulo’s main research interests focus on corporate social responsibility and social capital in a broad sense (the extent to which social norms and moral attitudes within social networks and communities shape individual and collective behavior). His research agenda focuses on two main themes: a) understanding how different aspects of corporate social capital (namely CSR) and non-corporate social capital interact with each other to affect firm-level decision making; b) understanding the channels through which social capital and corporate social responsibility create and destroy firm value. 

His secondary research interests are related to the welfare effects of environmental regulation, climate finance and commodity futures markets.
