I’m a journalist, media researcher and higher education lecturer based in London, UK.
I hold a PhD in Sociology and an M.A. in Media and Communications, both from City, University of London. I am a professional journalist with more than a decade of experience, covering business, politics and world affairs in news agencies. I have been based in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and the United States. I am the editor of the online archive Reading the Periphery.org , The Body blog, and in Portuguese for the Lá Fora, along with several other independent publications.
As a journalist, I cover mostly society, human rights, social movements, the arts and the media. I am nowadays working on projects related to automated journalism and sentiment analysis. As an academic, my current research interests lie in understanding the textual and visual discourse of minorities and peripheral groups. I have particularly invested in the study of online counter-hegemonic journalism in Latin America and UK. I am the author of The Internet, Politics, and Inequality in Contemporary Brazil: Peripheral Media (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018) and several articles about counter-hegemonic media and its quest for social justice.
