I m jornalist with bacharelor degree in Social Communication – Journalism and PhD in Human Geography – Migration.
I came to Portugal in 2001, where I took my Master’s degree in Communication and Cultural Industries and, after that, a specialization in Advanced Communication Studies. During this time, I had many work experiences as a jornalist (in newspapers, magazines, TV and digital communication), but the most important was the work developed as a member of the communication office of the “Choices Program” (2005-2009) – a Programme of the High Commission for Migrations in Portugal.
Between 2011 and 2014 I worked as a assistant research in the THEMIS Project (Theorizing the Evolution of European Migration Systems) at IGOT, and in 2014 I got a PhD scholarship from the Foundation for Science and the Technology in Portugal, to develop my own research project (completed in 2018).
Between 2019 and 2020 I was a research assistant on a scientific project at the Centre for Sociological Studies at the University Institute of Lisbon (CIES-IUL- ISCTE), and since then I have been a collaborating researcher at this institution and at IGOT. In addition, since 2018, I have been a Portuguese language consultant for Porto Editora.
Between February and August 2021 I coordinated the implementation of the Census 2021, in the municipality of Amadora (Portugal), which made me acquire new skills as a team manager, and since November 2021, I am a post-doc researcher for the international project Vax-Trust – Addressing vaccine hesitancy in Europe, at the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon.
