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 receiving 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 received both a B.A. and a B.Ed. in philosophy (2005) from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo, in Brazil.

In the fall 2017 term, I'll be teaching an advanced seminar on medieval moral theories at the Université du Québec à Montréal, as well as an introductory class on the history of Greek philosophy at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières.

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.
