Futures of housing movements, policies and dynamics in Lisbon and beyond (2018-2021, FCT, PTDC/GES-URB/28826/2017) I hold a PhD in Sociology from the University of Cambridge, with a thesis on the anti-austerity cycle of protest in Portugal and Spain between 2008-2015.  Previously, I was a Researcher at COSMOS, Scuola Normal Superiore, Florence and Free University of Bolzano. My work focuses on contemporary modes of political action from current social movements and political participation to political parties and populism.  I am currently translating this research into my first single-authored book. Contesting Austerity is under contract with Amsterdam University Press, Series on Protest and Social Movements.
