At e-Agriculture, I will assist in the organization of online forums, policy briefs and other subjects related to the constant update of e-Agriculture Platform, with a particular emphasis on Spanish language content.

Previous intern and current assistant to the International Relations Advisor of the Sao Paulo State Secretary for the Rights of the Person with Disability, of the Sao Paulo State Government, where we work for the social inclusion of persons with disabilities in Brazilian society, I am also serving as an intern at Fondazione Rosselli Americas, a not-for-profit organization devoted to the  use of ICTs for development, among other subjects. As FRA's intern, I am currently in charge of communication and outreach efforts of ICT4DEVIS initiative, the Information and Communication Technologies for Development International School, an initiative of FRA, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and University of Insubria, Italy.

I am graduate in International Relations at the Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo and current MBA student of Project Management at the Getulio Vargas Foundation.
