She collaborated as a director and playwright in companies and independent professional theater productions.

Research Interests: She is currently completing six years of post-doctoral research funded by FCT at CIAC – Centre for Research in Arts and Communication of the University of Algarve, in partnership with the CFCUL – Center for Philosophy of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. She directed the post-doctoral research project “Transdisciplinary Landscapes of the Gothic”, aiming at a theoretical and sensorial-aesthetic study of the Gothic-Romantic legacy in different media: dramatic literature, theater, performance, fine arts, architecture and cinematographic fiction. Following the research and implementation of a transversal and transmedia literacy in Artistic Studies, she is the co-Researcher in charge of the scientific project HUM+DRAMATECH, which interrelates the Theory of Affection in Dramatic and Post-dramatic theater with Contemporary Philosophies on Otherness, as well as with innovative applications of the New Technologies in Performance.
