I am currently professor of theory and philosophy of history at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. I have a PhD in History from the São Paulo State University, and my interests are mainly philosophy of history, and the history of historiography. I have recently joined our graduate studies program, where I will supervise MA and PhD students interested in theory and philosophy of history, and the history of historiography broadly conceived.
