I am a Researcher at the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation and an Assistant Professor at the Federal Fluminense University. I teach and research information systems subjects, linking knowledge from computer science and social sciences to understand changes associated with the new information and communication technologies, mainly related to health information systems and social information systems.
I am currently technical coordinator of the ‘Marielle Franco’ Favelas’ Dictionary (www.wikifavelas.com.br). The Favelas’ Dictionary is a public access virtual platform, coordinated by Professor Sonia Fleury from Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, to produce and disseminate knowledge about favelas and the peripheries. To support collaboration among the actors, the Favelas’ Dictionary was engineered as a wiki platform based on values of diversity and interdisciplinarity. Hence, the Favelas’ Dictionary aims to collaboratively retrieve favelas’ memories, disseminate other narratives about them, and discuss the right to the city.
