Her participation in Eclipse is aligned with her doctoral research and focuses on the articulation between gender and care from the experience of women who are part of the project’s territory in Brazil. Her involvement has enabled some actions, including the production of articles on some topics, one of which has already been published with the team: Exploring the cultural effects of gender on perceptions of cutaneous leishmaniasis: a systematic literature review.

In the various research and social intervention projects she has been involved in, she has worked on issues related to gender, territorial and socio-environmental conflicts, social cartography, social memory and collective health, among other topics. Throughout her academic and professional career, she has established research and collaboration relationships with a variety of traditional communities, including riverside communities, quilombolas, fundo de pasto and urban collectives, among others. 

As a result of some of these experiences, she published the book Entre a terra e o rio: Processo de Visibilização do Trabalho Feminino no Campo (Between the land and the river: the process of making women’s work visible in the countryside) together with the publishing house Segundo Selo. And with the same theme as the book, she also took part in the Contemporary Rural World in Bahia Collection, published by Editora Pinaúna, with an article in Volume 5: Gender, Generations and Traditional Communities.
