Initially trained as a dancer in Lisbon and London, she holds a MA in Performance from Goldsmiths, University of London (studentship Gulbenkian Foundation/Portugal), and a practice-based PhD in Performance Studies from University of Roehampton, London (studentship FCT/Portugal) with the thesis 'Spatial practices: a politics of place-making for performance studies'. She is a research collaborator of IS-UP (Instituto de Sociologia da Universidade do Porto, Portugal) and of NSU's (Nordic Summer University) artistic research study circle.
