I have a degree in History (1988) and Computer Science (1995) from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), a Master in Business Administration (1998) from UFRGS and a doctorate in Management (2003) from the McGill University. I am currently a Full Professor at HEC Montreal and an Associate Professor at the Getulio Vargas Foundation - EAESP/SP. My research interests are focused on the relationship between technology and society, as well as the possibilities to better understand and promote social changes using theoretical lenses based on practice and qualitative research methodologies. In terms of theories, the theory of structuration, different forms of social constructivism and several critical approaches have gained my attention. I have published my work in international journals such as Organization Studies, Journal of Management Studies, Business and Society, and Public Administration.
