I am a Professor of Ethics at the Federal University of Pelotas, as well as a Visiting Scholar at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
My academic focus lies in contemporary ethical and political issues, particularly where these areas intersect. Currently, my primary interest revolves around exploring the consequences of the pandemic on human relationships:
- The relationship between conditions of scarcity and justice (see my chapter)
- Exploring the types of moral responsibility and pandemic duties, as outlined in my written work. (see the chapters summaries)
- Investigating the impact of conditions of scarcity and vulnerability, which will be covered in a graduate course.
Outside of university, I have a passion for football and possess some skills as a player. Additionally, I am excitedly awaiting the arrival of my son, Otto, who will be joining our family soon. I enjoy engaging in philosophical discussions with my wonderful wife, Thaís. During my leisure time, I find great pleasure in being a warm lap for my cat, Chubby, especially during the winter while sitting in front of the fireplace.
