I am an archaeologist specialising in phytolith and starch grain analysis, which I apply to investigate human-environment interactions in Amazonia. I gained my undergraduate, masters and PhD degrees in Archaeology at the University of Exeter, UK (2005-2014). Since 2015, I have worked in the Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology of the University of São Paulo: first as a post-doctorate researcher (2015-2018), then as Collaborating Researcher (2018-2022), and finally as lecturer (2022-present). In this time, thanks to a FAPESP Young Researcher Grant, I contructed the Archaeobotany Laboratory, an extension of the Microarchaeology Laboratory of the same institution ( (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
