- Summary of research interests and expertise:
My research explores the media coverage of the European Union from 2004 to 2019, together with the various interpretations and appropriations of the idea of Europe. This is done through cross-linguistic analysis and by looking at media sources in Portugal and the United Kingdom. I am particularly interested in how European History informs the interpretation of ideas of Europe, how the media expands on these interpretations and how they are reflected on the coverage of news related to the European Union. I am also interested in conceptualizing and treating born-digital content as historical sources. This project is part of the Cleopatra ITN, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network led by the L3S Research Center at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University of Hannover. Supervisors: Professor Jane Winters and Martin Steer.

Details CLEOPATRA: Cross-lingual Event-centric Open Analytics Research Academy
The CLEOPATRA ITN, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network led by the L3S Research Center at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University of Hannover, aims to make sense of the massive digital coverage generated by the intense disruption in Europe over the past decade – including appalling terrorist incidents and the dramatic movement of refugees and economic migrants. It will facilitate advanced cross-lingual processing of textual and visual information related to key contemporary events at scale, and will develop innovative methods for efficient and intuitive user access to and interaction with multilingual information.
