Her research impact includes recommendations for legal reforms regarding sexual harassment, made in collaboration with and based on the expertise of members of UMAR ["Assédio sexual no trabalho: uma reflexão a partir de ordenamentos jurídicos"]. And recommendations for legal reforms regarding sexual violence, in collaboration with and based on the expertise of members of APMJ ["Os primeiros impactos da Convenção de Istambul: da relutância do legislador nacional em adoptar a falta de consentimento como elemento do tipo legal do crime de violação"]. Both sets of recommendations were taken into account in subsequent legal reforms introduced at national level. Previously, Tatiana worked as a lawyer; as a legal advisor and jurist in a feminist NGO; and she managed multiple Erasmus projects focusing on gender and migration from an intersectional standpoint. She also provided legal training to social workers, associations and NGOs' workers on the following subjects: “Gender and Migration: SGBV from an intersectional standpoint”; “Sexual Violence - legal framework”; “Domestic Violence - legal framework”; among others.
