I’m a PhD in Communication (Unisinos) in Brazil.
I research fan cultures since my Masters. First, focusing on Japanese pop culture and scanlation and now on romance fandom and mediation, both in Brazil.
During 9 months (2017-2018), I developed part of my PhD dissertation at DePaul University, in Chicago, under supervision of professor Paul Booth, with a Fulbright scholarship.
All my published work is in portuguese here.
