Researching discourse and knowledge in society
I research discourse and knowledge, the role they play in society and world politics, how we can apprehend their effects, and what it takes to produce discourses and knowledge helping us to create a world consistent with our values.
Working on discourse and knowledge is a peculiar craft as discourse and knowledge are both the object of our attention and the means through which we access and communicate these objects. I am fascinated by the recursivity of this situation, and thrive to create encompassing reflexive frameworks, combining tools from different disciplines, to address this amazing challenge.
As an Assistant Professor in Qualitative Methodology at the London School of Economics, I have found a position that enables me to merge the practical and theoretical dimensions of my research in my teachings of Text/Discourse analysis and Participatory Research.
I have created this website to share with you my research interests and current projects. I hope you will enjoy it!
Interested in learning more?
I aim to develop a better theoretical understanding of the articulation between discourse, knowledge, and social change, as well as methodological tools to produce more innovative knowledge and less socio-discriminative discourses. Here I present my main current and past research projects.
Look up my latest book - For those interested in questions of eurocentrism, ethnocentrism, globalisation of science, decolonising education, publishing practices and history of science in Brazil and India.
