Concentration: Tropical Conservation and Development
Advisor: Bob Buschbacher
Olá! I’m a passionate social-forester from Brazil interested in action-research related to governance, community forest management and development in the Amazon and other parts of the neotropics. I’m a graduate from the University of São Paulo, with a MSc from CATIE in Management and Conservation of Tropical Forests and Biodiversity, having worked for more than 20 years in Brazil and abroad (Australia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico). My family and I enjoy travelling and spending time outdoors, exploring and connecting to nature and different cultures-peoples. We have a home garden where we grow organic fruits, vegetables and spices and chillout with friends and Compay Segundo, our dog. Other leisure activities include: music, cooking, swimming and running.
