I joined the Environmental History PhD program in 2017.
My research focuses on the development of the oil industry in Brazil in the first half of the 20th century. I am particularly interested in human/nature interactions and how different groups, like politicians and scientists, viewed such interactions. Additionally, my research interests overlap with the field of history of science, as geology is a central element in the search and exploration of petroleum in Brazil, and I hope to further develop collaborations with this branch of the natural sciences. Before coming to Georgetown, I completed a Master's degree in Social History at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil.
