Her thesis (Two perspectives on alterity: the Other in Eça de Queirós’ «A Correspondência de Fradique Mendes», and José Eduardo Agualusa’s «Nação Crioula»), established her interest on comparative literature. She is currently a PhD student at the PhDComp programme. She received a Research Scholarship for the FCT-funded Playing Identities International Project at the Center for Comparative Studies; she is also a member of the CILM Project. Her current research interests are mainly identity studies (otherness, the uncanny body), feminisms and gender theory, dystopian and speculative fiction, and the grotesque and the abject.
