Postdoctoral Fellow – IPP-CEBRAP

My work

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

For my dissertation, I investigate 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 through the creation of these policies.

Recently, 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 a 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 program at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), all with João Feres Junior.

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

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

Finally, I had the opportunity to discuss my research and preliminary findings in several academic conferences, such as the Annual Congress of the National Association of Graduate Studies and Research in Social Sciences (ANPOCS) in 2017 and 2018, the National Meeting on Public Policies (ENPP), the National Congress of Sociology in 2017, the 13th Women’s Worlds (WW) Congress & Doing Gender (Fazendo Gênero) 11, all in Brazil, and the 2018 ECPR General Conference in Hamburg, the 2018 Mark Claster Mamolen Dissertation Workshop and 1st Afro-Latin American Graduate Student Conference at Harvard University.
