I have research interests in environmental governance and the interactions between local communities and extractive industries in the Brazilian Amazon. I employ the perspective of political ecology to examine webs of power among peasants, the State, private interests and environmental resources. My dissertation research examines the local and regional effects of quilombo land titles in the Lower Amazonian municipality of Gurupá, Pará.
