Personal profile

Research interests

I’m a lecturer, researcher, Brazilian Country Expert and practitioner working at the interface of psychology, health/wellbeing, community building, education, process design and organizational development. My work focuses on relational forms of practices creating a more effective means of collaboration and decision making. I’m interested in exploring how individuals can come together through dialogic relations - improving interaction and collaboration. I’m also very focused on participatory ways of developing research such as community practices,  arts-based research, narrative research and storytelling. 


I consider myself a transdisciplinary professional. I have also lived in many parts of the world. As a Brazilian, moving to England, then to the USA, Taiwan, Singapore and finally to The Netherlands, I have cultivated a cross-cultural understanding and a sensitivity to differences. All these movements, and the intertwined experiences that have accompanied them, have given me a fluid professional identity. With this interdisciplinary background, combined with my cross cultural experience, I am engaged in blurring disciplinary boundaries and integrating different ways of knowing to help tackle complex matters, such as those related to Imagineering and Tourism Destination Management.



Currently, I am also an associate of The TAOS Institute, a non-profit institute concerned with theory and practices of social construction. As part of the Taos Institute's Ph.D. program, I supervise PhD students, teach in the Relational Leading Masters program (in collaboration with Middlesex University) and design and facilitate workshops.

I’m also a country specialist at KIT/Intercultural Professionals Amsterdam, consulting and training professionals working in an international environment as well as families when moving abroad.
