Researcher of CHAM- Centro de Humanidades, FCSH/NOVA-UAC , presently holds a contract with FCSH (2019-2024), funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (Funding), to develop the project The Home and the World: the Goan intellectual elite and the colonial periodical press.

Studies, since 2005, the Goan intellectual elites and their contribution to the construction of Goan cultural and political modernity framed by the Portuguese and the British empires, and by international and Indian anticolonial movements.

Has launched in 2015, with other colleagues, the International Group for Studies of Colonial periodical press of the Portuguese empire (IGSCP-IP) and is a member of the coordination team of this vast network of researchers, research and archival projects, research centres, libraries, archives and public and private documentation centres - https://www.gieipc-ip.org/.

Has edited several books and published papers and chapters in this field.

Is also one of the chief editors of Práticas da História. Journal on Theory, Historiography and Uses of the Past (https://praticasdahistoria.pt/about)

Particularly since completing her PhD, her activity is moved by the interest in the theorization and practice of a cosmopolitan historiography, strongly linked to the idea of Academy as an international democratic community committed to the reduction of inequalities, namely academic and patrimonial, and to a dialogic approach to conflictual memories about common pasts.

Has a vast teamwork experience, started in 1994 as member of the Free Seminary of History of Ideas (https://slhi.pt/presentation), where has participated in projects related with the study of Portuguese liberalism, intellectual movements and 20th Century Portuguese magazines. 

Is a member of other different research groups and projects, namely Orion - Portuguese Orientalism, Pensando Goa=Thinking Goa, and CEAS - Circle of Studies on South Asia.  Has collaborated in the launching of the research lines dedicated to the colonial press in the projects Thinking Goa (USP, Brazil) and Portuguese Orientalism (CEC-FLUL).

Has considerable experience in contributing to the conception of research projects funded by Portuguese (FCT) and foreign agencies (FAPESP).

Before opting for an academic career was a librarian and archivist (1988-2005) in different public and private institutions in Portugal and India, and in a leading Portuguese daily (1989-1993), an experience that has carried to the research projects in which is involved.
