I am an FCT Research Fellow and a final-year 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 December 2021.
My research interests lie in the areas of Comparative Politics and Political Economy. My current research examines how ideological and socio-economic legacies of undemocratic regimes shape extremism after transitions to democracy.
I am also interested in European politics, post-Soviet politics, political systems, electoral behaviour. 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 journalism and consultancy. 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.
