She has been analysing the topic of newsmagazines, a sector of the press on which she has written over a dozen papers. In January 2018 she undertook an Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Training visit at the London College of Communication (University of the Arts London) and in January 2019, she carried out another, this time at the School of Journalism, Media and Culture (Cardiff University), with the purpose of implementing Magazine Studies in Portugal.
