I am a bioarchaeologist specialised in burned bone analysis, cremation, and South American archaeology. My research focuses on the intersection of advanced analytical and digital methods with funerary taphonomy to interpret past funerary practices, societies and processes of cultural change, expansion, and interaction. Beyond burned bones, I am deeply interested in archaeometry, digital archaeology, zooarchaeology, as well as ethics and archaeological outreach.
I received my Ph.D. from Teesside University, UK, fully funded by CAPES, my M.Sc. in Bioarchaeology (Human Osteology) at the University of Exeter, UK as a Wenner-Gren Foundation scholar, and a first in class History degree from the Universidade Federal de Pelotas, Brazil.
I have worked on many international, interdisciplinary projects, and coordinated outreach events including Pint of Science. I am President, CAA Brasil Chapter and Ethics Committee Member, CAA International.
