About Me

I am currently a PhD candidate at the Department of History at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. My dissertation, which I will defend on May 2019, examines the trajectories of officers and soldiers who were expelled from the armed forces and persecuted during Brazil’s military dictatorship (1964-1985). Focusing on the life trajectories of these men during military rule and after redemocratization, I examine how their cases can expand our understanding of the social and cultural reach of the dictatorship.
