Overview

I am a PhD researcher at the Work and Equalities Institute (WEI). I am also a member of the Doctoral Network of the Digital Futures at Work Research Centre (Digit).

My research examines paid domestic work. More specifically, I am researching how work, employment and unionisation in the domestic work sector have been (re)shaped by two major contemporary forces: the COVID-19 crisis and the ‘platformisation’ of domestic work. My project is funded by the AMBS and supervised by Prof Debra Howcroft and Prof Tony Dundon.

Over the past year, I have worked as an Associate Research Consultant and Research Assistant at The University of Manchester. Before that, I worked as an intern and later as a consultant for the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Geneva. In Brazil, my home country, I worked as a consultant for the UNDP, the Inter-American Bank (IDB), and the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI).  

Before moving to the UK, I completed my MA in Social Protection Systems at the University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhine-Sieg in Germany. I hold an MBA in Project Management from FGV and a BA in International Relations from the University of Brasilia, Brazil.
