What I'm Working On

I am currently pursuing a doctorate in Applied Linguistics at the University of São Paulo (USP) focused on ELT, in the English Language Program, while tutoring in the Academic Writing Laboratory at the University of São Paulo (USP). I’m also working with an article that deals with the challenges for EAP teacher education in Brazil.
