Projects per year
I joined Norwich Business School as a Lecturer in Business Strategy in August 2015. Prior to joining NBS I held teaching positions (lecturer, teaching assistant, and tutor) at the University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and Piaget Institute. I hold a BA degree in Economics from the Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa (Lisbon, Portugal) and a Masters (MA) degree in Finance and Business Economics from Fundação Getúlio Vargas, Escola de Pós-Graduação em Economia (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). I have completed two Postgraduate Certificates: a Research Masters in Economics, Universidade Nova de Lisboa and a Research Methodology for Business and Management, University of Strathclyde. I hold a PhD in Management at the University of Glasgow on the topic of business angel investing.
My research interests are in entrepreneurial finance and methodological applications. The first stream of my research has been on business angels’ decision making criteria. The second has question the comparability of different methodologies to address this issue.

Key Research Interests and Expertise
My research interests are in entrepreneurial finance and methodological applications. The first stream of my research has been on business angels’ decision making criteria. The second has questioned the comparability of different methodologies that examine business angel decision making. My interest in angel research extends beyond the investment decision to include:
Interactions with other funding agents (e.g. venture capital, crowd investing, and incubators)
How business angels add value to the businesses in which they invest.
Exit strategies of angel investors
Market evolution and size
Level of heterogeneity of the angel population
The methodological focus of my research interest aims to:
Question the use of particular methods in entrepreneurial finance
Comparative analysis of the use of different methods
