Carolina practiced environmental law in her hometown of Belém, Brazil, where she focused on cases involving the implementation of the Brazilian Forest Code and first became invested in the issue of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. She pivoted from legal research and practice to investigating the public policy dynamics of Brazilian environmental law during her Master’s degree at the Yale School of the Environment. She is currently pursuing a DPhil at the School of Geography and the Environment at the University of Oxford, where she is focusing on the adoption of jurisdictional Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) policies by Brazilian states, and on evaluating the impacts of REDD+ initiatives in the Brazilian Amazon. She is also a Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) graduate student fellow working on the Global Comparative Study on REDD+ (GCS REDD+).
