I am a Linguistics and Portuguese professor at the Federal University of Roraima (UFRR). I have a degree in Linguistics and Portuguese by the Faculty of Philosophy, Letters and Humans Sciences of University of São Paulo. During my undergrad studies, I started working as a junior researcher to study Karitiana language, at first, without any grant. After that, I have got a FAPESP grant. I did a second junior research with a CNPq grant. Right after finishing my undergrad studies, I entered in the master degree program of the Department of Linguistics from FFLCH/USP. I continued to study the semantics of indigenous languages and I have also entered in extension projects that tried to stablish a dialogue between linguistics and education. During my Master Degree I have received grant from CAPES and I have defended in 2017 and started my Ph.D. right after that. I have finished my Ph.D. in 2022 with a CNPq grant at USP's Department of Linguistics with a CNPq grant. Between 2019 and 2020, I have been to MIT as a visiting student with a CAPES grant. The main linguistic fields I have worked with in my career are Syntax, Semantics, Pragmatics and the study of Brazilian Native Languages. During these ten years doing research, I have worked with the following subjects: Mood, Modality, Tense, Aspect, Counterfactuality, Noun phrases, Subordination, Quotative constructions and active methodologies for teaching Portuguese.
