    Ph.D. in History (field of expertise: Early Modern History) from the University of Minho (Portugal). Title: "Os hospitais portugueses no Renascimento (1480-1580): o caso de Nossa Senhora do Pópulo das Caldas da Rainha" ("Portuguese Hospitals in the Renaissance (1480-1580): The case of Nossa Senhora do Pópulo, Caldas da Rainha").

    Áreas de investigação

    My PhD intended to study several strategies to handle with administrative and financial proceedings in the hospital of Nossa Senhora do Pópulo, from 1480 to 1580. This research focused on how Portuguese Renaissance hospitals were involved in urban networks, and how they solved their problems of supply. This observation has thus demonstrated that hospitals required unprecedented forms of institutional and economic organization. During a four-year research programme, hospitals were studied as economic entities, through the analysis of its rural and urban assets, under the assumption that hospitals were institutions, which required a very complex organization. These conclusions have undoubtedly triggered my interest for issues, which explore the credit practices in welfare institutions.

    In this regard, my postdoctoral research project aims to study the credit network constructed by the Misericórdia of Lisbon during the eighteenth century. The main goal is to demonstrate that the Misericórdia, along with other agents of credit, assumed an important position in provisioning assets during a period marked by financial difficulties, particularly after the massive earthquake in 1755. This project claims its originality by studying not only the impact of economic fluctuations in the nature and contents of loans, but also the pace of litigation over failed credit arrangements.

    Current research interests: economic and social history during the Early Modern period; credit history.
