I am doing my PhD in Sociology at the University of Exeter under the supervision of Professor Tia DeNora. My PhD project is entitled "Women and Rock Music in Portugal", and it is funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology, Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Portugal.

I have an M.A. in Sociology from the School of Economics, University of Coimbra (Portugal), with the thesis "murmur. poets in the blogosphere", and I worked as a research assistant at the Centre for Social Studies, University of Coimbra (CES), for the Project "New Poetics of Resistance: the Twenty-First Century in Portugal".

I also worked as a research assistant for the project “History of Medicine´s Visual Culture in Portugal”, at the Communication and Language Research Centre, New University of Lisbon(CECL).
