I have a B.A. in History and a teaching degree in History, a M.A. in Cultural History and a Ph.D. in Science and Technology Policy, all from the University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. I was an international visiting student and international visiting scholar to several institutions in the U.S. (Stanford University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Robert Morris University) and Germany (Freie Universität). My current research focuses on localization modding and my dissertation—entitled "It is €0,10 a word! The role of localization in the videogame industry"—focuses on the STS aspects of localization and the role this process has to the videogame industry. The paper “Language, Identity and Games: Discussing the Role of Players in Videogame Localization” is my most recent publication, and it discusses representation, identity, and video game localization. My research interests are: Videogame Localization, Game Studies, De and Postcolonial Game Studies, History of Games and Gaming, and Science and Technology Studies.
