Master in Early Modern History (2012) with the thesis «O Segundo Cerco de Diu (1546). Estudo de História Política e Militar» (EN: "The Second Siege of Diu(1546). Political and Military Study") in the University of Coimbra (Portugal). Supervisors: João Marinho dos Santos (UC) and Vitor Luís Gaspar Rodrigues (IICT).

PhD student in the same University, with a grant from the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, with the thesis «A Governação do "Estado da Índia" por D. João de Castro (1545-1548) na Estratégia Imperial de D. João III» (EN: "The Governance of the Portuguese"Estado da Índia" by D. João de Castro (1545-1548) in the Imperial Strategy of king D. João III").
My current research examines the governance of the "Estado da Índia" by D. João de Castro, the governor and viceroy between 1545 and 1548. D. João de Castro governed Portuguese India during a turbulent period of political and military tension, including the war against the Sultanate of Gujarat and the Adil Shah of Bijapur, the expansion of the Ottoman Empire into the Persian Gulf, and the strengthening of King’s D. João III’s overseas policy. My research aims to understand the Portuguese “Estado da Índia” not only as one part of the Portuguese Empire, but also as an important connective space.

I am interested in the history of Portuguese presence in the Indian Ocean, from political to military history, especially in the implementation of European institutions and warfare in the Portuguese “Estado da Índia” (16th century).

Research assistant at the Centre for History of Society and Culture (Centro de História da Sociedade e da Cultura - University of Coimbra) and at the Portuguese Centre for Global History (Centro de História d'Aquém e d'Além-Mar - New University of Lisbon and Azores University).
