I am interested in the development of emotional and interpersonal competencies, contributing to the capacity to interact effectively with others and to lead and manage people at work. My earlier research examined the link between emotional intelligence and the quality of social interaction. Now I am focusing on emotional expression and emotion regulation, encompassing the capacity to instil positive spirits and energy in others, and to manage challenging interpersonal situations at work.

At the Católica-Lisbon School of Business and Economics, I teach courses on Organizational Behavior in Executive Education, MBA and MSc programs. I also teach workshops on creativity. In my earlier career, I worked in business and journalism and co-directed an award-winning documentary film.
