Since 2023 she is a researcher at CHAM- Centre for the Humanities, NOVA FCSH & UAc, integrating the research group Environment, Interactions and Globalization which pays particular attention to the circulation and contacts of human groups, as well as their interaction with nature, and impact in the historical processes, in different geographical and temporal contexts.

Currently, she is doing a PhD in Ancient History at NOVA-FCSH, with a scholarship financed by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), looking to develop a research project focusing on the processes of transfer and reception of Babylonian magical-medicinal knowledge in various contexts in Western Asia in the 14th and 13th centuries BC.
