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 baking, reading fiction, learning new languages, and travelling. 

Currently, I'm working as a research associate for a joint UFMG/FJP project, and I'm job hunting, mainly in Europe.

I have an English language podcast on Brazilian politics called Brazil Nuts and I'm an active member of my city's 500 Women Scientists Pod.
