About me

I am a lecturer in sport management.   Before my appointment here, I worked as an assistant professor of sport management at University of Sao Paulo, Ribeirao Preto. I received my doctor degree from the Ohio State University, with a major in sport management and a minor in research methods. During my doctorate, I was fully funded by the Fulbright Commission - USA and the Brazilian Ministry of Education. In the 2014/2015 academic year, I spent a year as a visiting scholar at Isenberg School of Management, University of Massachusetts – Amherst.   My research has been published in Journal of Sport Management, European Sport Management Quarterly, and Sport Management Review, among other journals. 

My current research interests are in social impacts of sport mega-events (mainly the ones hosted by developing nations). Social impacts vary from people displacement to sport participation and capacity building.
