About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), in Canada, where I work on late medieval philosophy and virtue epistemology. My dissertation director, Dr. Claude Panaccio, held the Canadian Research Chair in Theory of Knowledge until his retirement, in 2015, and I was part of the Chair's research team between 2011 and 2015. 

I landed in Montreal in January 2011, after getting an M.A. in Philosophy (2009) and an M.A. in Ethics & Society (2010), both from Fordham University, in New York City. Before that, I had earned both a B.A. and a B.Ed. in philosophy (2005) from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo, in Brazil.

In the winter 2017 term, I worked as an adjunct instructor of philosophy at the Université du Québec à Montréal, teaching Metaethics. I have also worked as an adjunct instructor of philosophy at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, teaching a class on the History of Medieval Philosophy and another one on the History of Greek Philosophy.

I was one of the founders of Fillosophie, a project to foster the active presence of women in philosophy and encourage them to do research in the field. I am a certified peer helper for issues concerning psychological and sexual harassment, especially in the academic context.

I also enjoy projects related to food ethics, feminism, and sustainability.
