My interests focus on real and imagined urban landscapes. My present 
research investigates the construction of state-sponsored housing 
between 1940 and 1986 in Northeast Brazil. In light of the postwar 
urbanization investment, my analysis discusses concepts of modernization 
and nation-building presenting the influence of the United States in 
Brazil, developmental regional differences, and the transnational 
character of mass housing construction in Latin America.
