My background is in Political Sociology and I am especially interested in the decision-making process about urban transportation and urban mobility in Brazil and Canada. Besides, I consider myself as easygoing, sociable, driven and responsible person.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I came to SFU because this University has an open space to discuss scientifical issues from an interdisciplinary perspective, which is pivotal for pursuing research in the urban mobility field.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

My subject matter is the political and decision-making process related to urban transportation and the interest representation performed by the stakeholders.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

At Urban Studies we can develop reflections about transportation considering also the planning and the city participation.
