I joined the Department in September 2019 as a Teaching Fellow.
I received my doctorate in Social Psychology in 2012 from the Department of Social Sciences, Loughborough University. Under the supervision of Professor Michael Billig, I investigated the annual celebration of the April Revolution in the Portuguese Parliament using mostly qualitative research methods.
Prior to that, I undertook a master’s degree in Social Psychology at ISCTE-IUL (Lisbon). There, under the supervision of Professor Maria Benedicta Monteiro, I studied blatant and subtitle forms of prejudice in Portuguese children with experiments. I also worked as a young quantitative researcher in Social Psychology at the Institute of Social Sciences (ICS-University of Lisbon) and CIS-IUL (Lisbon). At ICS, under Professor Jorge Vala's leadership, I investigated political attitudes and infra-humanization in the Portuguese population. I also worked as a University Teacher at Loughborough University, Leicester University and NTIC-Nottingham Trent University.

My research interests revolve around investigating traditional social psychological topics as discursive actions using a rhetorical/discursive psychology approach.
I have worked and published with Professor Michael Billig (Loughborough University) on the topics of self-persuasion in party politics, misrepresenting reality (with political data and data from the Seduction Community or PUAs), politicians manipulating texts and multi-party audiences, countering political manipulation, politicians remembering and forgetting/repressing the national past, and sexist language habits. I have also worked and published with Dr Sue Widdicombe (The University of Edinburgh) on studying self-identity in Psychology.
