I have a Masters Degree on Cosmic Ray Physics and a PHD on Philosophy, both at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil. My research had until recently been focused on the History of Astronomy, mainly Ptolemy, Copernicus and Kepler. Over the last five years, I became increasingly interested on feminist and decolonial critiques of modern science, as well as on gender studies and the works of women philosophers. I have been a professor of Philosophy at the Federal University of ABC, Brazil, since 2010, and have recently written on science and democracy. Currently, my research has focused on the vitalist conception of matter in the work of Anne Conway. I have also been writing a paper on Kepler’s views on scientific progress, wherein feminist and decolonial critiques on that notion provide the background.
