Gabriela Thomazinho is a Brazilian economist who graduated from University of São Paulo (USP) and currently is a Ph.D. student in Public Administration in Fundação Getúlo Vargas (FGV). Her research project's main focus is the reproduction of school inequality by exploring how teachers’ stereotyped categorizations of their students are formed. The theoretical framework employed will be that of Street-Level Bureaucracy (SLB), which brings important insights concerning how working conditions, organizational factors, and individual characteristics shape the SLB’s discretion.
Over the years, Gabriela Thomazinho's research and work have been focused on educational policies, inequalities, and human rights. She has already worked for some important non-profit organizations as Todos Pela Educação and Auschwitz Institute for the Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities and has been the manager of the project "Assuring the Rights of the Guarani Kaiowá Indigenous Population ", financed by the European Union Commission in Brazil.
