Graduated in History and Archaeology in 2005 from the FCSH – Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. Wanting to change her research scenery, she moved to London to pursue a Masters in Artefact Studies at the University College of London, where she produced a dissertation titled “Portuguese Faience in London”. This was just the first chapter of a much bigger research project that would start in 2006 and end in 2010, when she submitted her PhD to the NOVA University of Lisbon, dedicated to the study of Portuguese tin glaze wares in England and Ireland, fully funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia.
Enlarging the global perspective of her studies, she is currently developing a post-doc research project dedicated to the trade and consumption of Portuguese ceramics in the North-Atlantic British colonies. She is a researcher at the Instituto de Arqueologia e Paleociências and at the Institute of Contemporary History.
Although she allocates her time to many different subjects, coordinating over 20 excavation sites, publishing books and papers dedicated to different chronologies, from the 7th to the 20th century, she has a special interest in material culture production, trade, and consumption and what commodities can tell us about past generations.
