About me

I am a PhD student working with Pascale Engel de Abreu at the ECCS Research Unit. 

I have a master’s degree in clinical health psychology from the University of Coimbra (Portugal) with a specialisation in cognitive and behavioural therapy. I am also a registered clinical psychologist in Portugal (Order of Portuguese Psychologists).


My research

In my PhD I am developing and evaluating the effectiveness of a mother-tongue based preschool language intervention program on the language and literacy outcomes for Portuguese language-minority children growing up in Luxembourg using a randomised controlled study design.

I am a member of the research team working on the project "A Preschool Oral Language Intervention for Language-Minority Children: A Randomised Controlled Trial" (PI Pascale Engle de Abreu).
