I am a PhD student in Digital Humanities at the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King’s College London, where I am working on a prosopographical study of an elite in Early Modern Portugal. My main areas of interest are Digital Humanities, history, relational databases, prosopography and historical sociology. I completed my degrees in Lisbon, including an MA in Early Modern History at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, with a focus on the Portuguese Empire. From Europe to Asia (passing through India and Brazil), the 16th and 17th centuries feel like home to me (if only they had computers…)!
Coming from a background in History, I am especially interested in the way technology has an impact on the way we do historical research. In the debate between being primarily a technologist or a humanist I side with the humanists. After many years of learning several languages I need a few more to learn programming languages!
