Personal profile

Personal information

I hold a PhD in Human Geography from the University of Barcelona (2009). Since 2019 I am FCT Associate Research Professor in Urban Geography, supported by the Scientific Employment Stimulus Program of the Portuguese Foundation for Science & Technology. My research includes 3 main topics: (i) Nightlife, tourism and urban change in south European cities; (ii) Social geographies of youth in Euro-Mediterranean countries; and (iii) Environment, global change and society. With a total of 667citations (Scholar Google, 01/08/2020; h index=15; i10 index=23), I have published a total of 75 publications, including Annals of Leisure Research (in press-2020), Town Planning Review (in press-2020), Urban Studies (2019), City (2018), Urban Research & Practice (2018), Tourism Geographies (2018), Cities (2017), City & Community (2017), Leisure Studies (2016), Social & Cultural Geography (2016) and Area (2015), among many others. My publications track also includes edited books and chapters in prestigious publishers such as Palgrave Macmillan (2019), Routledge (2018), Cambridge Scholars (2018), Brill (2016), Peter Lang (2016), Emerald Press (2012), and Sage (2012). I am editor of Exploring Nightlife: Space, Society and Governance (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018). My works have been presented in more than 50 national and international conferences and symposiums, and I am co-organizing the 1st International Conference on Night Studies. In this sense, I’m coordinating LXNIGHTS – The International Research on the Urban Night ( since its foundation in July 2014, with the aim of widening and spreading knowledge, know-how practices, exchanging research experiences, and promoting and launching new win-win joint initiatives between national and international scientific partners. Today, LXNIGHTS encompasses 30 scholars from Europe and the Americas. My research track also include my participation in 13 research projects by national and international agencies (MINECO, FCT, Portugal 2020, and FP7). In addition, I have been Scientific Advisor of the project ‘Geographies of Nightlife in Lisbon, Madrid and Barcelona (2018-2020)’, funded by Reina Sofia Centre on Youht & Adolescent Studies (Spain), and also of “SAFE!N Project: Safe Night Out Certification in Lisbon’, a community-focused project funded by the Lisbon City Council (BIPZIP-Ref.0095/2015).
