A Bit About Me

I am from Brazil, Sao Paulo, and I am currently a Ph.D. fellow at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). I have a Ph.D. and Master's degree in Business Administration from FGV EAESP in Brazil. I have working experience in multinational organizations from the hotel industry in Brazil and Canada, where I lived for two years and a half. I also have entrepreneurial experience managing my own business for five years. My research interest is related to strategy, sustainability, and digital transformation. Mostly I am keen to understand how organizations can generate a positive impact on society. Additionally, I have developed a special interest in education and new methodologies that can help students and professors have a better teaching/learning experience. Besides work, I like to cook (I do it fairly well), travel, and watch movies/series. I am a big fan of my nephew and nice and love to play with them :).
