Currently a PhD candidate in Culture Studies at the Catholic University, in Lisbon (2016), with the aid of a scholarship by the EDP Foundation, and holds a MA in Cultural Management, from the University of the Algarve, Faro (2013) with a thesis on the subject of Cultural Management of Contemporary Art Museums in Portugal, researching the Strategic Communication Management of three contemporary art museums; and BA in Communication Design, IADE – Creative University, Lisbon (1991).
With more than 20 years, experience in communication design, advertising and publishing, and more recently specialising in cultural management of Contemporary Art Museums in Portugal, the focus of my work has been in “transforming” non-profit organizations by incorporating new ways of telling stories, of their collections through mobile technology.
My ongoing projects consist in contemporary art exhibitions which bridge the divide between cultures and latitudes, while activating “memory” through immersive exhibition experiences and replicating knowledge across generations and accessibility issues. More recently, I collaborated with the Orient Museum to produce curatorial narratives within the Museum space, that consisted in designing, producing and presenting Chinese Contemporary Art exhibition.
