She completed her doctorate in 2001 in the field of English Literature with a thesis on the concepts of vision and creation in the poetic writing of the Brontë sisters, whose research was largely developed in the Universities of Leeds and London, United Kingdom, between 1997 and 2000. She was a member of the Board of the Portuguese Association of Anglo-American Studies (APEAA) from 1995 to 1997 and has held several other institutional positions over the years.

Her field of specialization is Romantic and Victorian Studies of Literature and Culture and the Studies of Poetry and Poetics. Poetry of the nineteenth century, associated with history, culture and the arts (Intercultural Poetics), has been a priority, as well as British female poetry of all periods.
