Introduction
Currently, I coordinate the Management and Innovation lab at the University of Fortaleza, where I am also a lecturer. In this sense, my main research interests have been entrepreneurship and innovation, specially their socially oriented variants, i.e., social entrepreneurship and social innovation. Moreover, I have been studying and publishing on Education for Sustainability, field which I got closer during my PhD.
