I hold a BA in History (New University of Lisbon) and a Master degree in Modern History and History of the Discoveries (New University of Lisbon), and I'm currently a researcher at the Centre for Overseas History (CHAM, FCSH-UNL/UAç) and a PhD student in the program PIUDHist. History: change and continuity in a global world (ICS-UL; FLUL; UE, ISCTE-IUL and UCP). My research interests have included the study of identities and political culture in the early modern Portuguese empire, both in the Estado da Índia and in the Portuguese communities in the Philipines. Recently I have been researching the interactions between empire-building, colonialism and the environment during the 19th century, focusing mainly in the case of Goa.
