I received my PhD in History from the University of Porto (2012) and have subsequently joined the Institute for Medieval Studies at NOVA University of Lisbon as a research fellow. I am an historian of early medieval Iberia with a comparative interest in northern Europe. My research has focused initially on land use and landscape representation, then on justice and the settlement of disputes. More recent work includes topics such as maritime communities, parish formation, and the production and transmission of early medieval charters.
