Professional and academic experience - I worked as Assistant Professor of History in Private Brazilian Institutions of Higher Education (Aesthetics, Cultural History, History of Brazil, Contemporary History and International Relations, and advising academic monographs) and High School, the disciplines of sociology and philosophy for several years. After that, I also worked with Educational Public Policies (planning, implementation, and monitoring processes) at Secretaria de Estado de Educação do Distrito Federal - SEEDF. I Managed the Permanent Collection at Arquivo Publico do Distrito Federal (the Superintendency of Document Management Coordination of Federal District – ArPDF), developing description of activities of the Fundo SSP - confidential and secret files of the Secretaria de Segurança Pública do Distrito federal - Department of Security of the Federal District - during the Brazilian dictatorship ( 1964 - 1986.

My dissertation project - 'Recovering the History of Black Movement in Brasília, Brazil ( 1978-1988)' - is based on my research work with surveillance archives produced by the secret police during the dictatorship - the Fundo SSP.
