I'm a Brazilian political scientist, with a PhD from the Federal University of Minas Gerais. My research focus is political institutions, gender, race, and their intersections. However, I'm also experienced in several other fields of research.

In my spare time, I love learning new things, reading fiction, and travelling. 

I have been research officer at the Wales Centre for Public Policy for a little over a year and we do all kinds of research to support the policymaking efforts of the Welsh government.

I also have an English language podcast on Brazilian politics called Brazil Nuts. (Currently on hiatus, but we do plan on coming back!)
