I am currently assistant professor at IADE – Universidade Europeia, in Lisbon. Previously, I was visiting assistant professor at the School of Fine Arts of the University of Porto. I am an associate researcher at the Research Institute for Design, Media and Culture (ID+) in the Unexpected Media Lab group. I obtained my PhD in Art and Design at the University of Porto. I received a grant from the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) to develop my PhD research that was published, in 2020, by Editora Caleidoscópio and Direção Geral do Património Cultural in Portuguese. I graduated in Fine Arts – Sculpture from the School of Fine Arts of the University of Porto and obtained my MA in Visual Studies at the School of Architecture and Planning of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), US. I have published, lectured, and presented my work in various international contexts.

I am also interested in collaborating with artists, designers, architects and colleagues with similar interests, as well as in working with MA or Ph.D. students whose research deep in art & design, new media art, site-specific sculpture, socially engaged art, women in the arts, and the aftermath of these art practices and ideas in art collections and museums. Feel free to get in touch with me if you are thinking of pursuing graduate studies or committed to R&D activities.
