Over her academic career, she has been working on the relations between environmental crises and socio-cultural contexts, analyzing how these relations are embedded and expressed in social practices, conflicts and decision-making processes. Her main research focuses are related with climate change and adaptation; governance and communication of risks and uncertainties; and transition to sustainability.
More recently, she is exploring how local governments are coping with public policies and actions for fostering adaptation and sustainability, and the complex interactions between science and policy. She also works on critical analysis regarding the interactions of global crises (e.g. climate emergency, covid-19 pandemic) and their impacts on framings and practices of sustainability.
She integrates the Environment and Society Research Group of the Institute for Advanced Studies at USP, and co-heads the research group CIRIS - Governance, Risk and Communication. She is a permanent researcher of INCLINE/USP, where she coordinates the research area of Cities, Vulnerabilities and Climate Change.
