Ph.D. student

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of British Columbia’s Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy. My research interests include math classroom practice and curriculum implementation to improve opportunities to learn for students with different backgrounds. During my Ph.D. program, I am particularly interested to understand how British Columbia math teachers make decisions in the specific context of their classroom practices. Previous to coming to Canada, I have analyzed classroom teaching practices to improve student learning opportunities in Latin America and worked with universities and policymakers to design better curricula and more equitable educational policies. I am also a former philosophy public high school teacher and math educator in an NGO in Brazil. My background includes a master's in International Education Policy Analysis from Stanford University (USA) and another in Education from the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil). I also have a Bachelor's and Teacher Credential in Philosophy from the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil).
