(Ph.D. in Social Anthropology and Ethnology, Unicamp Brazil/ EHESS, France, 2018) Currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Social Sciences Graduate Program at the Federal University of São Paulo (Unifesp), I work in Northern Haiti combining fieldwork with historical sources focusing on themes such as kinship, historicity, ecology, and food. Drawing from an anthropology of history, my dissertation explores the place of ancestors, animals and spirits in local knowledge, the history of slavery, plantation, and revolution, and the role of ruins and monuments in the life-world of peasants and popular classes. My actual research draws on ecologies of practice, environment, and energy in Haiti through analyzing the social life of wood charcoal as well as associations with other agricultural products and their representations and engagements in multiple scales.
