I am an FCT Research Fellow and a PhD/DPhil Candidate in Politics at the University of Oxford.
I am the recipient of a Full Scholarship granted by the FCT, the Portuguese national funding agency for science, research and technology, with full funding until October 2021.
My research interests within Comparative Politics include: undemocratic regimes and their legacies, European politics, post-Soviet politics, political systems, electoral behaviour and the relationship between History and Politics. Methodologically, I am interested in quantitative methods, textual and visual analysis using Big Data applied to politics.
Before joining the University of Oxford I briefly worked in consultancy and journalism. I read for an MA in Governance, Leadership and Democracy Studies (Summa cum laude) at the Institute for Political Studies of the Catholic University of Portugal, with a full scholarship awarded by the Fundação Oriente. I hold a B.Sc. in Business Administration from the Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics.
