Marcos Signorelli is an Associate Professor of Public Health at the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), Brazil.

Marcos has been collaborating with the Judith Lumley Centre since 2010, and is an associate member of the Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in Safer Families, The University of Melbourne. He currently coordinates a research program at the House of the Brazilian Woman of Curitiba (HBWC), a recently implemented public policy consisting of 24/7 specialized services for women in situations of violence, including health, psycho-social support, police, justice, shelter and economic independence.
