I am a social and environmental scientist from Brazil with more than 10 years of experience in the Brazilian Amazon. My main interests are related to behavior change, cultural anthropology, indigenous ontologies and other than human beings. The main focus of my research has been the Amazon, although I have knowledge from different countries in Asia and Africa. At the moment I concentrate my studies on post-humanism, spiritual ecology; indigenous knowledge; ancient traditions, emotional political ecology; cosmopolitics; anthropocene; and neoliberalization of nature.
