Birthplace: Brazil

I am pursuing a master's degree in Philosophy at the State University of Campinas (Unicamp) and my studies focus on Classical Studies and Ancient Philosophy, althougs. I began studying the concepts of and in Epicurus' Letter to Herodotus as an undergraduate student (advisor: professor Flávio Ribeiro de Oliveira), analyzing this text this text in Ancient Greek and translating it to Portuguese. These two concepts are also what I have been working on, with professor João Carlos Kfouri Quartim de Moraes, as a master student. I am also interested in Philosophy of Psychoanalysis, in 2021 I finished my research (funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation, FAPESP, grant #2019/12033-7 and advised by professor Daniel Omar Perez) on the concept of uncanny, primarily discussed by Freud in his text Das Unheimliche, proposing an intersection between this text and another one of Freud's: Der Mann Moses und die monotheistische Religion. Furthermore, in 2022 I obtained the "Certificate in Classical Studies: Ancient Greek", granted by Unicamp's Institute of Language, as well as the "Certificate in Classical Studies: Latin" from the same institute.
