I have worked as senior lecturer for almost 20 years, having had a long academic career at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. I also integrate as researcher the Observatory of Religion in the Public Space (POLICREDOS). After lecturing, working and writing on consumption issues for 14 years, ten of them in Portugal, I have dedicated the most recent six year-period to subaltern economies, particularly the peripheral and indigenous ones, from a feminist perspective. I have worked on subjects such as poverty and social inequalities and have dialogued with organisations and citizens' collectives on a large set of issues, namely: complementary and transition currencies, exchange fairs and community economies. My main research and lecturing interests are: Feminist Economics, Feminist Aesthetics, postcolonial feminisms, postcolonial and decolonial studies on consumption and Economics, poverty and social inequalities from an interseccional perspective, Global South within Europe.
