Birthplace: Brazil

I am currently a visiting researcher and teacher at the Aeronautics Technological Institute (ITA). I hold a Ph.D. degree in philosophy (University of São Paulo, 2017), a bachelor?s degree in philosophy (Jesuit Faculty of Philosophy and Theology, 2008), and a master?s and a bachelor?s degree in electrical engineering (University of Campinas, 2002 and 1999). My research area encompasses philosophy of technology and of engineering and engineering education. I am now studying: engaged technical designs, mainly focusing on those with bigger emancipatory or decolonial impacts; decolonial theory and philosophy; engineering education. I am particularly interested in: 1) understanding the emancipatory/decolonial technical practices? uniqueness, when compared to the mainstream ones, in terms of: applied methodologies and how and to what extent they promote dialogue of knowledge with the supported/partner group and foster decoloniality; (other) knowledge they use and produce; orienting values and worldviews; built solutions and their sociotechnical impacts; 2) identifying, drawing on 1, limitations in the currently established ontological, epistemic, and political understandings in the field of philosophy of technology (PT), offering enlargements (in dialogue with the area?s tradition -- also the decolonial nascent one) and thus contributing to PT?s decolonization; 3) conceiving and implementing educative practices capable of forming engineering students to engaged designs in general and, specifically, to decolonial technical designs. I am also a high school teacher (philosophy) at Escola Waldorf São Paulo, where I coordinate the high school course. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
