Introduction
Post-doc researcher in the Department of Applied Linguistic of the University of Campinas. Investigates the Media History in Latin America by examining the changes in small audience groups linkages and framings in medium innovations. Develops quali-quanti methodologies over public opinion by a media ethnography inside far-right/left WhatsApp groups. Currently, working with Natural Language Processing (NLP) on Python, designing a methodology project to framing relevance in mediatized groups.

The thesis investigates the interactions of the actors of a What...

Project
Publicize Ernest Manheim's research in Latin America, a pioneer in public opinion studies and in the term mediatization (“mediatisierung”).
Project
It publicizes an open-source software for the analysis of WhatsApp groups and to dimension the possible presence of bots and authoritarian discourse content, as well as any thematic structure, as a quantitative index, without losing my domain: media ethnography. The project contextualizes the use of new methods for research in digital humanities, with a particular focus on details, allowing researchers to find relevant points for ethnographic studies. It dialogues with Computational Linguistics in natural language processing techniques in quantitative investigations on the contents disseminated in groups, allowing an analysis of news and adherence to specific topics. It also contextualizes Erving Goffman’s face-to-face representation and figuration concepts, developing features to detect vulnerabilities and ritual of conversational frames via machinations and laminations. It also ponders on Ernest Manheim’s concepts of group linkages in the formation of publicity experience and changes in public opinion. The project is divided into three parts: i) ethnography in far-right and left-wing WhatsApp groups in Brazil; ii) building Qualichat in Python and (see: qualichat.com) and iii) testing Qualichat's functionalities in qualiquantitative studies. The project is by funding American Political Science Association since 2020. Software package in Python: https://pypi.org/project/qualichat/
