I work with ecopoetry as methodology and practice of thinking with the atmosphere and the geology of the Anthropocene.
I am a poet and translator of (mostly) ecopoetry.
I am also a researcher at the American Studies Research Group of the Centre for English Studies, University of Lisbon; and a Research Fellow at the Center for Gary Snyder Studies at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE), China, and affiliated researcher at ARCUM, Arctic Research Centre, Umeå University.
My Master's Thesis on Buddhism and Ecocriticism in Gary Snyder's work is available here (in Portuguese) and was completed at the Department of English Studies, University of Lisbon.
In my teaching I apply horizontal hierarchy and pedagogical methods that support learning with and from others. I have taught:
