Eudes is a Cornell PhD candidate who holds a bachelor's degree in anthropology and at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. He grew up in Brazil, France and the United States, all of which inform the arc of his core intellectual pursuit: how economic thought shapes the state and its financial intermediators.
His dissertation takes as its starting point the rise of the BRICS as a personal, professional and intellectual project that animated a wide network of technocrats, entrepreneurs and scholars, which he studies from the vantage point of Brazil. His fieldwork documents the stakes, as well as the ultimate failure, of the articulation and institutionalization of what his interlocutors imagined to be a new monetary order.
Eudes' research follows the implications of this failure, which proved far-reaching, as a renewed attempt to harmonize financial infrastructure across the Americas brought into view new underlying rifts in the fiscal realm. Here, Eudes tracks emerging transnational coalitions of media, social movement and business elites in the United States and Brazil. He probes specifically their ongoing policy dispute for delimiting the size, scope and composition of the domestic market, which his informants reason to be a contest for (or against) "industrial revolution."
At Cornell, Eudes was involved in the development of academic programs such as the Global Finance Initiative at the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies and the Meridian 180 project at the Cornell Law School. He is now an active collaborator with the Emerging Markets Institute at the Johnson College of Business. Within the community, Eudes is a proud member of the Ithaca Global Shapers, an initiative of the World Economic Forum.
