As a Full Professor at the School of Arts, Sciences, and Humanities of the University of São Paulo (EACH-USP) and a Level 2 Productivity Scholarship holder from CNPq, I teach postgraduate courses in the Music Department at ECA-USP, including the analysis of Brazilian musical historiography and studies in musical signification, while also being responsible for the course on sociopolitical dimensions of music and sonic arts in the PROMUSPP program at EACH-USP. I graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile with a degree in Music, specializing in the bassoon in 1992, where I began my musicology studies under the guidance of Juan Pablo González and took classes with Samuel Claro Valdés. At the University of São Paulo, I completed my academic training with a master's degree in 2001 and a doctorate in 2008, advised by José Eduardo Martins and Mário Ficarelli, respectively, and received an Honorable Mention in the Capes Thesis Award 2009. Since 2002, Régis Duprat and Mário Vieira de Carvalho have been my main mentors. I joined the faculty of ECA/USP in 2002, moved to FFCLRP-USP in 2010, and later to EACH-USP in 2017, where I teach in the Arts department. In the field of research, I am a member of national and international study groups, notably as coordinator of the "Ideas" thematic area in the "Thematic Project on the History of Music in Portugal and Brazil" at CESEM-Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and I also lead the "Decolonial Musicology" group, which brings together researchers from various regions of Ibero-America associated with ARLAC-IMS, aiming to question and deconstruct Eurocentric narratives in musicology, opening space for new epistemologies and critical perspectives. My participation in national and international conferences is frequent, and I have presented work at renowned universities such as the University of Coimbra, Nova de Lisboa, Minho, Julliard Scholl, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Università Ca' Foscari Venezia, Universitat de Barcelona, Universidad Autonoma de México, and Universidad de Buenos Aires, among others. I serve as an ad-hoc reviewer for research funding agencies like CNPq, Fapesp, Fapemig, Fapeba, and Capes. I am a founder of musicological associations such as ARLAC-IMS and ABMUS, and have been a member of the ARLAC Executive Committee since 2017, having served as General Coordinator for an ARLAC Congress in Santos in 2017 and two ABMUS Congresses in Marechal Deodoro in 2015 and Santos in 2023. I coordinate the Laboratory of Musicology (LAMUS-EACH), whose main research focus is on the sociopolitical and cultural dimensions of music, with an emphasis on studies in musical signification, highlighting projects on the rhetorical models of the Galante style in Luso-Brazilian domains, particularly through the study of José Maurício Nunes Garcia's work, and the analysis of decolonial musical processes in Brazilian music. Within the musical signification line, projects encompass studies on band and fanfare music, as well as the impacts of intersectional prejudices on the creative process of Black artists in Brazil. The central purpose of these studies is to analyze the occurrence of these phenomena in terms of identity issues, coloniality, transculturality, translocality, and decoloniality, extending the analysis to colonizing processes, forced diaspora, or immigration of precarious populations, that is, music in superdiversity. In summary, the projects of LAMUS-EACH seek to systematize the formation of knowledge, sociocommunicative processes, chains of transmission, ideological processes of power, cultural transit, and the actions resulting from these processes, aligned with perspectives from Critical Theory, fundamentally aiming to observe the relationships between sociopolitical structures and their practices, in terms of spaces, languages, and communicative strategies.
