I am a second-year PhD candidate focusing primarily on political philosophy/theory and social ontology. My thesis investigates the nature of feasibility, which I understand, following David Estlund, as the ability of a group of individuals to achieve a certain outcome.

I was born and raised in Brazil, but I lived in the UK for 5 years and in Hungary for 8 months. I currently live in Vienna, Austria.
