I’m a Brazilian visual journalist based in Philadelphia. I'm currently a graphics reporter at The Washington Post, where I cover foreign and national security news. Previously, I was a graphics editor at The COVID Tracking Project at The Atlantic, where I managed a team of dozens of volunteers, and a data visualization developer at Reuters. Before moving to the U.S., I worked as a reporter at Gazeta do Povo, one of the largest newspapers in Brazil.
I studied journalism in Universidade Federal do Paraná, and data journalism in the Lede Program at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. In 2016, I published “Ibiúna, anteontem”, a digital interactive book about women’s fight against the Brazilian military dictatorship in the 1960s. I love to tell visual stories using data, programming and illustration. I see it as a way to combine two of my passions: journalism and design. I can easily spend a day coding and playing in Illustrator. Lately I've been using my free time to learn more about 3D illustration and 3D modeling. When I'm not on my computer, you can find me knitting, drinking coffee, going on adventures with my dog or binge-watching The Office.
