Ph.D. in Psychology (University of Coimbra, 2013).

Since 2019, I am an Associate Researcher at and Full Member of the Centre for Social Research and Intervention (CIS).

At CIS, I was the co-coordinator of the research group Community, Education, and Development (CED) between 2017 and 2021.

Presently, I am also the Chair of COST Action 18213 – Rural NEET Youth Network, funded by the European Commission, through the COST Association.

My main research interests are focused on the psychosocial development of adolescents and young adults in rural areas, especially those Not in Employment, Education, or Training (NEET). In that context, I have published approximately 50 scientific works, on topics such as:

social development and well-being;
school attainment;
school-to-work transition;
youth mobilities between rural and urban areas;
young adults perceptions about and their involvement in farming;
youth mentoring.
