I work on Elections, Democracy, and their current challenges. I coordinate the project VotedHR - Elections, Democracy and Human Rights, at the Centre of Social Studies, University of Coimbra. The project aims at producing scientific knowledge, gathering insights from electoral stakeholders, people working with elections, and the public in general, to advance the concrete determinants of electoral integrity on the ground. It also aims at having an impact on the community, raising awareness on the main aspects and components of democracy, elections and Human Rights in general. This includes coordinating and carrying out a series of advanced training courses on Electoral Observation, Elections in Portugal, Democracy and Human Rights for Educators, among others. Internationally, VotedHR connects with International IDEA and Electoral Management Network (EMN) in the international project "Elections and Covid-19". This includes carrying a survey on how presidential elections were run and which impacts of the pandemic. I author a case study on Portugal, analysing the complexity and challenges of this electoral cycle. The aim is to produce scientific outputs at an international level, on how elections were globally impacted by the pandemic, allowing global data to be analysed. This is useful for the scientific community and practitioners, globally. A series of scientific publications is envisaged for the coming months, with expected great impact at several levels. I worked with International IDEA on the field of Electoral Justice (Stockholm and Jakarta, 2018; Mexico City, 2019). Lecturer at ProCuria - The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Indonesian Constitutional Court, on Electoral Justice (2018) and Human Rights (2019). Visiting researcher in The Electoral Integrity Project, coord. by Prof. Pippa Norris, Sydney University - Harvard University, 1st semester 2015. Researcher in the Project "Peacebuilding and sustainable peace: UN missions in Timor-Leste and Portugal's contribution" (2012 - 2014). UNDP Electoral Legal Adviser in Timor-Leste, on the 2012 Electoral Cycle. Bridge certified trainer. Board Member of the Portuguese National Electoral Commission since 2010. Legal adviser before the Portuguese Parliament. PhD on International Politics and Conflict Resolution by the University of Coimbra.
