As of October 2022, I will be a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Philosophy and the Department of Molecular Biology at Dalhousie University. My areas of specialty are philosophy of science, philosophy of biology and data ethics.

I have a PhD in Philosophy (McGill University), a graduate teaching degree (Université de Montréal), an MA (PUC-Rio - Brazil) and a BA (UFRJ - Brazil) in Philosophy.

My thesis "The Conceptual Foundations of Evolutionary-Developmental Biology" addresses key questions in contemporary evolutionary theory such as causation, niche construction and evolutionary novelties in the context of the debate surrounding the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis. I also specialized in data ethics with a focus on data ethics in genetic science. 

I have teaching experience as a course instructor in both English and French.

I currently live in Montreal (Canada) by way of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and Paris (France). I am fluent in English, French and Portuguese and can speak and read Spanish.

Outside work, you can find me running, dancing Argentine tango, studying Art History, listening to my vinyl record collection or exploring natural landscapes.
