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.
