Hello. I am a PhD researcher at Teesside University (UK) with interests in bioarchaeology, burnt bone analysis, cremation and South American archaeology.

I completed an MSc in Bioarchaeology (Human Osteology) at the University of Exeter (UK) as a Wenner-Gren Foundation scholar supervised by Prof. Christopher Knüsel, while my undergraduate education resulted in a first in class History degree from the Universidade Federal de Pelotas (Brazil).

I have published chapters and articles regarding my PhD research. I have worked on international academic projects, with other research focused on zooarchaeological analyses of southern Brazilian lagoon Cerritos sites and Guarani occupations, the most extensive of which implemented a holistic excavation methodology and analysed thousands of icthyoarchaeological remains for my undergradution dissertation.

Teesside Co-ordinator for Pint of Science (an international science festival), Research Associate at LEPAARQ, UfPel, member of the “Jê Landscapes of Southern Brazil” project, the “Alfred Russel Wallace Correspondence Project” (Natural History Museum, London), and active member of BABAO (British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology), ICAZ (International Council for Archaeozoology) and ABRAF (Associação Brasileira de Antropologia Forense) among others.

Interested in bioarchaeology, funerary archaeology, human osteology, burnt/burned bone, cremation, zoo archaeology, icthyoarchaeology, dog domestication, mound and enclosure complexes of the southern Jê, as well as digital technology, with focus on photogrammetry and 3D modelling.
