Professor at Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences Porto, Portugal

My research deals with the civic and political participation of children, young people and adults, with a special interest in groups at risk of exclusion and the ways formal and non-formal education (including artistic) experiences can generate more complex ways of relating with the political. More recent interests include doctoral education, university social responsibility and environmental education. I use quantitative, qualitative and participatory methods.
