Birthplace: Brazil

I am a pos-doc at Instituto de Física da USP (IFUSP), after I have concluded a pos-doc at Grad Program of Math teaching at UFRJ. I hold a doctorate in History of Science, Technics and Epistemology at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). I have a Master degree in the Grad Program in Social History (UFRJ) and a Bachelor degree in History also at UFRJ. I have received a funding to spend one year at Saint Louis University as part of my doctorate in Brazil. I am a participant of the CNPq's research groups: Grupo de Teoria e História dos Conhecimentos (TEHCO - IFUSP) and Estudos Sociais e Conceituais de Ciência, Tecnologia e Sociedade (UERJ/ Departamento de Filosofia). My experience is in the History of Science of the twentieth century, specifically in History of Physics in Brazil. Some of my papers are on the processes of scientific knowledge construction, keeping focus in history of scientific experimental practices. I have been developing thoughts on Theory and Methodology of History, looking for the different ways to build an argument in History approach. My interest is to deal with the historical narratives offered by people with different trainings and their relation with Education and Theory of History. Finally, the historical conditions of Brazilian Science also take my time. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
