I'd like to nominate myself as LAC participant.
I'm an ICANN53 fellow, LACRALO participant and a graduate from the
Brazilian Internet School of Governance of CGI.br in the 1st class
(2014). Recently I've also joined NCUC, Giganet, AIR, IAMCR and
Internet Society Brazil (official membership).
I've also been recently to the UN in the WSIS+10 event and the CTEC
event last 17th.
I am geographically nearer the Caribbean than subtropical Latin
American (São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro), however I've done my doctorate
in Catholic University of São Paulo and my research group has
representatives both in SP and Rio. Also, me and other interested
parties in Internet Governance in Brazil articulate ourselves via an
online group of 600+ members, a national mobile messaging group of
+/-50 and a Northeastern Brazil chapter with +/-20 members.
I was subscribed in all IGF lists the last edition - including as
observer, I've participated in some and also a few online meetings.
I've also been to IGF as a former student of CGI.br representative of
the Northeastern Brazil region.
I'm also an university teacher in a new IT Campus, I have some
flexibility to travel. I'm mainly trying to engage students in
research in Internet Governance and seeking paths to continue studying
the topics myself.
As for civil society engagement, I've been a project coordinator and
volunteer in ONGs, a writer/reviewer for activism blogs and tech
journalism media and I've acted towards policy development for
education and technology in public schools and universities.
