I am an interdisciplinary researcher with a background in social sciences, development studies (MA in Governance and Development at the Institute of Development Studies), and administration (Ph.D. in Administration at EBAPE/FGV). My research interests are centred on global value chains’ private regulatory initiatives and their interactions with local political economy contexts. I am particularly interested in the interplay of these factors in CSR sustainability initiatives aimed at improving the governance of forests in the global south.
