My main research interest is in the societal role of higher education. I study HE from multiple lenses, particularly sociological and comparative.
For almost two decades I have researched about the international dimension of higher education. My main interest is the dynamics of regional and inter-regional higher education frameworks in the developing world, having studied Latin American regionalisms extensively.
The work on regional higher education in Latin America, combined with the experience of teaching sociology of education, led me to engage with decolonial and postcolonial theories and explore the field of international development.
I am also interested in the multiple approaches to education policy-making. I favour a critical approach to policy analysis, although am increasingly interested in the methodological aspects of the policy process in different areas of knowledge.
I act as a reviewer for the journals:
- Education Policy Analysis Archives
- Educação e realidade
- Globalisation, Societies and Education
- Journal of Studies in International Education
- Migration and Society
