My background is in Sociology, having completed my PhD (2009) at the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Algarve, Faculty of Economics, and a full member of the Interdisciplinary Centre of Social Sciences (CICS.Nova). My research has focused on social care for older people, exploring themes such as reconciliation between work and care, experiences of providing family care and preserving dignity in later life. More recently, I have focused on themes, such as active ageing, ageism, the fourth age, health and long-term care, and sexuality and inequalities in later life. I have published extensively on these issues, including in The Gerontologist, Journal of Aging Studies, Ageing and Society, Health and Social Care in the Community, among others. My most recent research interest is the quality of life in old age, which is directly and indirectly related to the other topics I have studied.
