I’m a journalist, media researcher, and lecturer based in London, UK.
My current research interests involve digital media in non-Western contexts, online self-representation, and the political consequences of self-design. Recently, I was a Visiting Lecturer at City, University of London teaching “new media”.
My PhD in Sociology also at City discussed the role of the alternative media in improving the coverage of inequality in contemporary Brazil. My Masters of Arts analysed the British Press and the coverage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. I hold two bachelor degrees, one in Journalism and another in Information Science.
Besides being a professional journalist for more than a decade, I am also a part-time editor of the online archive Reading the Periphery.org, publish in Portuguese for the Lá Fora blog, and write art reviews for The Body.
I am currently open to collaborations and freelancing. If you want to contact me, feel free to send a message to heltonvlevy at gmail
