Research

I'm working as Graduate Assistant Research under Dr. Jepson's supervision on a project about household water security, for which I'll be doing fieldwork in Northeast Brazil, in the state of Ceará. 

My areas of interest are Environmental Geography, Climate and Water Governance, Climate Justice and Environmental/Health Equity. 

For my Bachelor dissertation (Federal University of Paraíba) I investigated the risk of contamination of water resources from the oil industry in Brazil. As case study, I identified vulnerable populations in the state of Paraíba (Brazil). 

My M.Sc. thesis (University of Amsterdam) was written on public-private partnerships for urban water and sanitation provision in the Global South. My case study was the role of Sabesp (water utility responsible for water and sanitation provision and treatment in the metropolitan region of São Paulo - Brazil) region's water governance during its recent urban water crisis.
