I am a Spanish anthropologist, currently affiliated to the Institute of Heritage Sciences of the CSIC (Spain), as a Ramon y Cajal fellow. I was awarded a PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology at the the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon, Portugal (2007). My current research site is Angola, where I investigate politics (leadership, charisma, repression, resistance, utopia, revolution), temporalities (historicity, memory, heritage, expectations) religion (prophetism, Pentecostalism) and mobility (diasporas, transnationalism, the Atlantic). I was recently the Project Leader of the Collaborative Research Project “Currents of Faith, Places of History: Diasporas, Connections, Moral Circumscriptions and World-making in the Atlantic Space” (CURRENTS), funded by the HERA consortium (2013-2016). I am also co-Editor of the journal Advances in Research: Religion and Society, edited by Berghahn.
