Você Fiscal

Last updated: December 18, 2020

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, andmobilized 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.
