Short Bio

PhD candidate in Computer Engineering at University of São Paulo, I’m a brazilian computer engineer and have a Master Degree in the same area, both taken at the same institution. My research focus is about network neutrality in a computer networks perspective. I work as Technical Advisor for Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI.br) and I’m professor at Universidade Anhembi Morumbi in Internet Governance classes. Nowadays I’m working in project about youth engagement in Internet Governance called Youth@IGF Programme, a cooperation between CGI.br and Internet Society.

Reasons for the candidacy

I have followed LACNOG mailing list, IETF-LAC and other similar mailing lists (GTER and GTS-L) for more than a year, but only this year I had participated in person at LACNIC 25 in Cuba. I have been working for nearly 4 years in Internet Governance area as a technical advisor to CGI.br, but I want to engage more in international technical debate. I believe I can be a new voice to contribute in meetings agenda construction and also helping bring new players into this space, since I have been working with youth engagement. Also, I believe in diversity as one of the important Internet Governance values. I believe that, as a woman, I can bring some diversity to the program committee, currently composed only by men. I believe I can contribute in a qualified way in the meetings agenda construction and participating in debates, whether as a session moderator, or presenting some relevant work since I already have experience in this kind of participation in some Brazilian events.
