I am a PhD candidate in the School of Culture and Communications, University of Melbourne. The title of my thesis is: 'Rethinking Performance in the City Through Participatory Art in Public Spaces'.
I presented my completion seminar on the 27th of May 2013. My thesis due date is the 15th of August 2013. I am currently living in Ireland. My research is supported by three scholarships: MIRS, MIFRS and a Top-Up Scholarship award from the Institute for a Broadband-Enabled Society (IBES), University of Melbourne.
I was awarded a MSc with Distinction in Interactive Digital Media from Trinity College Dublin in September 2009. I also hold a BA(Hons) (First Class Honours) in Digital Media, Design and Production from the Letterkenny Institute of Technology, Ireland and a Bachelors in Architecture and City Planning from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
My final project for my Masters course was a collaborative web interface telling the story of the Museum Building inside the Trinity Campus.
