I am an attorney licensed in New York and Brazil with seven years of experience working in international law and and rule of law development. At the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative, I designed and implemented multi-million dollar programs to strengthen justice systems in Sub-Saharan Africa. Prior to that, I worked for UNESCO, INTERPOL, and practiced law in Brazil. I hold an LLB cum laude from the Universidade Federal do Amazonas in Brazil, an LLM in International Law from the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in France, and an LLM from the George Washington University Law School. I am fluent in Portuguese, English and French, and speak intermediate Spanish.
