My main interests are history and philosophy of science. I have certain interest on the the following topics: natural philosophy, natural magic, apparatus and scientific instruments, the idea of experiment and experience, science, technology and mathematics in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Since 2008, I have taught history and philosophy of mathematics at Catholic University of São Paulo. Brazil. I am also a research fellow at CESIMA (Simão Mathias Center of Graduate Studies in History of Science, Catholic University of São Paulo, Brazil) and co-coordinator of HEEMa (History and Epistemolgy in Mathematics Education, Catholic University of São Paulo, Brazil).
