I graduated in Psychology (clinical field) in 1996, completed a master’s degree in Psychopathology and Clinical Psychology in 2000, and earned a Ph.D. in Social and Organizational in 2006. I obtained my Habilitation (2020), also in the scientific field of Psychology.
Currently, I hold a tenure-track Faculty position at Iscte-University Institute of Lisbon as Associate Professor, where I teach and conduct research at the Center of Research and Social Intervention (CIS-IUL).
As a psychologist, I am certified by the Ordem dos Psicólogos Portuguesa (OPP) as a Specialist in two of the three core areas of Psychology: "Clinical and Health Psychology" and "Work, Social and Organizational Psychology", and hold a European Certificate in Psychology from EuroPsy, as well as an advanced specialization “Neuropsychology”.
My main research area has been the study of socio-affective and cognitive processes, often employing a multi-method approach, including assessing subjective, behavioral, and physiological responses within a social context. I focus on the psychological processes and their implications in social, health, and educational contexts, often involving interdisciplinary research teams.

Beyond my professional life, I have a deep passion for music and find great joy in photography. In the 'PERSONAL INTERESTS' section of my profile, you will find a collection of my amateur photographs.
I have other interests though, but... it's too personal ...
