She holds a degree in Art Education from the Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado University in São Paulo (98) and a Master of Arts in Space Strategies - Exploratory Art in Public Contexts from the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin (08). Additionally, she has completed trainings in acting and physical theatre at the TUCA theatre school of the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo and at Centro de Pesquisa Teatral Institute under the direction of Antunes Filho.

She is a member of the artistic research group of the Nordic Summer University (since 2016) and the Embodied Research Working Group of the International Federation of Theatre Research (since 2017).
