Hi there! My name is Ana and I am a PhD Candidate at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Australia. I am doing an Internet-related research, focusing on participatory practices taking place in online football fandom communities in Brazil. My main data source is Twitter, and I am addressing issues such as the content being produced by these fans, actions of fan activism, and issues of hierarchy in these communities.

Apart from that, I am a huge football fan, supporting the Brazilian club Atlético-MG (or Galo) my whole life. If I am not watching some type of sport competition on the TV, I’ll probably be following It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Homeland or Game of Thrones, some of my favorite shows!

You can find me on Twitter (@carolvimieiro), at the Lattes Platform, or email me at acvimieiro [at] gmail [dot] com.

Thanks for stopping by! ;)
