“To learn how to listen to other human and more than human voices “ this is my current aim in Earth System Governance research. I am interested in questions of justice, transformative change and relational approaches to politics. I am working in two projects, one about transformative governance and sociobiodiversity chains in the Amazon, and the other about intersectionality and biodiversity conservation. I have a PhD in Sustainable Development from the University of Brasília. Currently, I am an associate professor at Radboud University and a senior research fellow at the University of Brasília.
When I read the first Science and Implementation Plan in 2009, I knew that I had found my community. I contributed to the new ESG Science and Implementation Plan as one of the coordinating lead authors, and now I am a member of the Scientific Steering Committee, helping to move forward the People and Education portfolio. As a researcher, I am in the SDG Taskforce WG on Education and Learning, and in the Planetary Justice and Biodiversity Taskforces. Besides, I am part of the Earth Commission WG 4 on Transformations and of the Active Learning in International Affairs Section, of International Studies Association. Facing so many planetary socio-environmental challenges, I believe that we should try to make a difference. For me, teaching is an important way to impact society.
