My research interest is the presence/perception of immigration in narrative literature, mainly Italian immigration in Brazil in late 19th and early 20th centuries. I pay special attention to how this immigration is represented in the literature produced in the state of São Paulo in Brazil. I also pay some attention to the ways this type of immigration is represented in different media, such as film and newspapers, as well as other genres in literature.


I also work as the editor-in-chief for Fala Aí, the magazine of the Portuguese Program at UGA, and as an active member of the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB) at UGA.
