I am a woman of learnings

who teaches logic and philosophy.


Before my formal philosophical education, I received a 9-year ballet training. And sang in a pop rock cover band of

controversial musical qualifications.


I am a first gen whose entire higher education was supported by public policies through research scholarships

and other student benefit programs.


My Ph.D. dissertation addresses conceptual aspects of a famous mathematical result,

the proof of the Four-Color Theorem.

The Brazilian Ministry of Education considered mine as

the Best Brazilian Philosophy Dissertation of 2014.


From early on, I always loved taking part in academic events and also had the chance to edit publications

derived from some of them.


 I got a tenured-track job at UFRGS where I taught, mentored and advised undergraduate and graduate students.

I also trained High School teachers in interinstitutional and interdisciplinarity projects.


Starting in 2016, I have been part of collective projects aiming at reshaping the hegemonic academic patterns, both from a historical-conceptual point of view 

and from a day-to-day educational perspective.


Against those hegemonic academic patterns, I have always devoted myself with equal vigor to teaching and researching

-including research about teaching,

and mostly in my mother tongue.


But I published some  

papers and chapters, some by myself

and some with dear co-authors.


Thanks for visiting!

FÓTON Pré-vestibulares

After obtaining my master's degree, I taught logic and philosophy in another preparatory course.

UFSM was then pioneering an interdisciplinary way of including philosophy at its entrance exams.

At FÓTON I experienced the challenge of creating new pedagogical materials from scratch, since there were no textbooks fitting the model of the philosophy exams - a mixture of questions about the history of philosophy, themes and problems ranging from ethics and political philosophy to semiotic, logic, epistemology and philosophy of science.

Práxis Pré-vestibular Popular

During my training as a teacher, I volunteered to teach philosophy in a community project developed by other students from my university, to prepare low-income people for the entrance exams. At Práxis I learned how to recruit, how to design curricula and syllabi, how to create course materials, how to work in highly interdisciplinary and collaborative teams, how to assess our pedagogical performances.
