Short Bio

Research Fellow in the project Sustainability transition: Measuring the sustainable performance of industrial ecosystems (SusTran) at the Department of Management (DiSA). I have a bachelor in Environmental Engineering (Universidade de Passo Fundo, Brazil), a masters' in Production Engineering (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil) and a PhD in Environmental Planning (Griffith University, Australia).


My research interest lies in how societies and economic activities can transition towards sustainable and resilient ones in a changing climate context. Currently, I am focusing on the heavy industry's transition away from fossil fuels, seeking to understand its stage of development and additional efforts necessary to accelerate this process. I am also interested in how this transition can create co-benefits instead of negative socio-economic externalities.


Previously, I have researched food systems, emphasising how local food initiatives and strategies can increase positive environmental and socio-economic outcomes and the capacity to cope with climate change effects.
