Fields of interest
● Literature and Cultural Studies
● Post-structuralism
● Drama and Gender Politics
● Gender Studies
● Masculinities
● Schizoanalysis

In my research master's thesis, I investigated the interplay of Masculinities and
Loyalism/Unionism in two plays by Northern Irish playwright Christina Reid.
Currently, on my PhD research, I am exploring the relationship between patriarchy
and capitalism in the social and political context of contemporary Brazil. My
hypothesis is that the artistic corpora of my research can offer a response to the
processes of subjectification that are characteristic of neo-liberal and religious
systems, which are responsible for regulating bodies and desire in the current state of
Brazilian culture.
