Welcome! I am an NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Departments of Environmental Studies and Sociology at the University of California Santa Barbara. In Brazil, I work in affiliation with the Social Science Center for Development, Agriculture, and Society at the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro. In 2018, I completed my PhD in Sociology and Community & Environmental Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
My research and teaching interests include race and ethnicity, environmental sociology, and economic sociology. I use qualitative, ethnographic, and comparative-historical methods to examine how race and racism shape the formation of environmental practices and policies in multi-racial societies, such as Brazil and the U.S. My research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Fulbright Program, and Foreign Language and Area Studies fellowships.
