Você Fiscal

I worked as a cofounder of the Você Fiscal project in 2014, which advocated for transparency and auditability of the Brazilian electronic voting machines, alongside Professor Diego F. Aranha.

As Head of Communications, I created a successful crowdfunding campaign and led a team that got us featured in every top TV channel and newspaper in the country, and mobilized tens of thousands of people to participate in crowdsourced citizen auditing via an app I helped design and implement.

I wrote high-traffic articles for the Huffington Post and got published on some of the largest Brazilian blogs.

As a direct result of our efforts, the software for all the 500,000+ voting machines used in Brazilian elections got updated with an important security feature.
