She holds a MS in Architecture (2014) from Porto’s University and a PhD in Architecture, design and computation (2021) from Lisbon’s University, with a visiting period at the Bartlett School of Architecture. Her doctoral research focused on state-subsidised housing and its relationship with urban development, exploring the articulation of quantitative methods of spatial analysis with the sociological and historiographic aspects of architectural research as a means of illuminating the spatial forms of political, social and economic processes.
