I've been a PhD student at LOGOS since October 2016 under the supervision of Manuel García-Carpintero and Josep Maciá. My research is part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie DIAPHORA project (

Before coming to LOGOS, I got my MA from the State University of Campinas in Campinas (Brazil) and my BA from the Federal University of Ceará in my hometown Fortaleza (Brazil).

I like to think about issues in the intersection of the philosophy of language, mind and epistemology. I have published on the purported particularity of indexical thoughts and argued that they are indeed sort of special: it is specially tricky to decide whether they can be shared among distinct subjects or not. I have also published on whether successful communication is compatible with a Fregean view of our attitudes and about confused thinkers can successfully communicate with their non-confused peers. 

More information about my current projects can be found on the website below.
