I am an International Relations and Latin America specialist with Portuguese and Spanish bilingual-native proficiency, with solid work experience within intergovernmental organizations, sub-national governments, and academic research in Brazil and Uruguay. Currently, I am writing the dissertation of the MA in Global Political Economy at the University oh Hull.

I am native in Spanish. I am from Uruguay and I have a Degree in International Relations and a Master in Latin American Studies at the University of the Republic (UdelaR, Uruguay).

I am native in Portuguese too. My parents are Brazilians and I grew up in a city located on the border with Brazil. Also, during my student life, I receive the CAPES scholarship from the Brazilian Ministry of Education and I spent one year in Brazil, where I studied at university. Also, I have published several academic articles in Brazilian journals, and currently, I am a research assistant at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil).

I have experience in MERCOSUR, the most important intergovernmental organization in South America – where I worked with Brazilian diplomats – as well as in the Portuguese Embassy in Montevideo. I hold the Certificate of Proficiency in Portuguese for Foreigners (CELPE-Bras; Brazilian Ministry of Education) and the IELTS (University of Cambridge).
