I am currently professor of philosophy of history at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). My main areas of work are philosophy of history and the history of historiography, with a more recent emphasis on digital methods for the latter. My current main project is the cataloging of all History MA and PhD dissertations defended in Brazil from 1942 to 2000. By the end of it I will deliver a fully operable website in which people will be able to browse through and get some interesting quantitative insights from the database. Alongside this main project, I have been exploring an insight about the role of trust in historical knowledge.
