BA in Social Sciences from the Federal University of São Carlos (2006), Master in Social Sciences (emphasis in Anthropology) from the same University (2008), and PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Brasília (2012). I am an Associate Professor of the Department of Anthropology of the University of Campinas since 2013, and I was Head of the Postgraduate Program in Social Anthropology at the same institution between 2015 and 2017. Head of Department since August 2021. From August 2019 to July 2020, I was a Visiting Scholar at the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography of the University of Oxford. Since 2005 I have been carrying out research, extension and documentation projects with the Kalapalo, speakers of a variety of the Upper Xingu (MT) karib language. I have experience in Indigenous Ethnology, mainly in politics, kinship, ritual and regional systems. From 2011 to 2014, I coordinated the Kalapalo Culture Documentation Project (PRODOCult), part of the Indian Museum / FUNAI Indigenous Language and Culture Documentation Program, in which I continued to participate as a guest researcher until June 2015. I am an effective associate of the Brazilian Association of Anthropology (ABA) and member of the Society for the Anthropology of Lowland South America (SALSA). From July 2014 to July 2019, I have coordinated the project "Transforming Amerindian Regional Systems: the Upper Xingu Case", which was supported by FAPESP with a Young Researcher research grant.
