I am a Marie Curie Fellow and PRIMO Early Stage Researcher based at the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon (ICS-UL), in Lisbon, Portugal, where I’m also a PhD student. My main research interests are social development, food security, climate change, emerging powers, strategic partnerships, multilateral regimes, international development cooperation and International Relations theory. I have a BA in Communications (Catholic University of Pernambuco, Unicap), a post-graduation – specialist degree – in Contemporary International Relations (Pontific Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Puc-Rio) and a master in International Relations (Rio de Janeiro State University, UERJ), for which I was given a scholarship by the Research Foundation of the State of Rio de Janeiro.
I worked as a lecturer at the International Politics sector of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro’s Political Science Department. There, I have taught Brazilian Political Thought, Introduction to Social Sciences, Introduction to Political Science, and International Politics to undergraduate courses of Social Sciences and Economics. I also worked as a lecturer of International Financial System to the undergraduate course of International Relations at Hermínio da Silveira University Center. From 2013 to 2014 I was an intern and volunteer at the UNHCR unit in Brazil.
