Personal profile


I've been working as a Lecturer in Human Resources and Organisational Behaviour, Organisational Psychology and Applied Sport Psychology in universities in Portugal, Poland and England. I teach or taught subjects like Human Resources Management, Leadership, Organisational Development, Organisational Psychology, Organisational Behaviour, Working in Teams, Applied Sport Psychology among others. I have also been the supervisor of several post-grad students. H 

Prior to my academic career, I worked as an environmental psychology consultant and as Head of a Training Business Unit in a Portuguese consultancy firm. As an environmental psychology consultant, I developed several socio-economic and social impact studies associated with the construction of new motorways, railway, hospitals, etc. As a Head of Training Business Unit, I developed several training programmes for external clients and had the chance of leading a team of instructors. I have also experience working as a consultant in Change Management and in Sport Psychology.




My research is about using social network analysis, team dynamics and positive psychology to increase the performance of individuals, teams and organisations both in the industrial and in the sports context. It covers areas such as shared cognitions, social contagion, leadership, psychological safety, among others. I presented my work at international conferences (e.g. International Network of Business & Management Journals Conference and Lusophone Congress on Organizational Behaviour and Management) and have published in international scholarly journals (e.g. Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management, Active Learning in Higher Education and International Business Research).


As a practitioner and consultant, I have experience working both in the organisational and sports context, in areas such as:
- Training and development
- Performance psychology
- Change management
- Sport Psychology
Among others.
