My research focuses on environmental politics, especially the social and political aspects of energy transitions in emerging economies. I also have research in international and comparative environmental law, comparative environmental politics and on the role of Brazil in global environmental and climate governance.
I received a PhD in International Relations (2018) from University of Brasília, and part of the doctoral research was carried out at the School of Global Policy and Strategy, University of California San Diego, where I was a Visiting Scholar (2016-2017). I also hold an MPhil in Environmental Policy (2010) from University of Cambridge, a Masters in International Law (2008) from the University of São Paulo and a Bachelors of Laws (2003) from the same university. I have research and teaching experience both in law and political science/international relations. I am a member of the Brazilian Climate Change Forum and a lawyer, regularly registered at Brazilian BAR association since 2004, having worked both in legal consultancy and litigation cases.
