My broader research interests focus on the creation of affirmative action policies in the public and private sector, especially universities and graduate schools.

For my doctoral dissertation, I investigated the creation of affirmative action for admissions in graduate programs (Masters and Ph.D.) at Brazilian public universities and the different types of change that occurred in graduate programs and their selective processes.

In 2020, I published a peer-reviewed paper with João Feres Júnior about the creation of affirmative action policies by graduate programs in Brazil.

I co-authored a book with João Feres Junior, Luiz Augusto Campos, and Verônica Toste about the history of affirmative action and the public debate on the subject in the Brazilian context.

Additionally, I published peer-reviewed papers related to my doctoral research at Cadernos de Pesquisa and Sinais Sociais.

In 2015, I conducted one study on the affirmative action program at the University of São Paulo (USP) and two studies about the program created by the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), all with João Feres Junior.

Furthermore, with Renata Villela I co-authored a paper focused on a comparative analysis of the Parliament of Brazil and Bolivia’s quota systems.

I have also had the opportunity to work on numerous projects about inequalities in Brazil and published studies on gender and racial inequalities in the Brazilian Judiciary.
