Fields of Study: Modern Latin America, International History
I am a first year graduate student in the History Department working on the relations between Latin America and the Third World during the Cold War. My current goal is try to understand the rise and fall of the idea of Third World solidarism, focusing specifically on the 1950s and 1960s. This project addresses the broader question of how Latin America influenced the dynamics of the Cold War and the development of the Global South. During the last two years, I have conducted multi-archival research in the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Brazil, and Argentina.
Before coming to Princeton, I worked as a research fellow at the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. During the last Spring I had also the opportunity to teach at undergraduate level.
I graduated summa cum laude in History from the University of Rio de Janeiro. I later read for a masters in International Relations at the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro.
