Diogo's current research focuses on evangelical conversion, drug trafficking, youth violence, and the police in a favela in Rio de Janeiro. His first impressions of Washington University were the best possible. He finds the structure of the university excellent as well as the amazing library hours (open twenty-four hours, except Friday and Saturday). He has found the staff there is friendly, always trying to help. He really enjoys the great athletic complex. The courses are also really nice. And to top it off, he can do everything by bike!
