I am a PhD candidate in Artistic Studies – Art and Mediations at NOVA FCSH with the project “PIGS: Spaces of Exhaustion as an Artistic Practice in Southern Europe”. My research is focused on Spatial Practices in the specific geography of Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain from 2008 to 2022. I territorialize the racist acronym PIGS with social art practices under the lens of critical theory, politics and art history. 
I am a researcher at the Art History Institute, School of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. I participate in the research group CASt (Contemporary Art Studies) and in the cluster Performance Art & Performativity in Arts.
