DPhil candidate in social anthropology at the University of Oxford. MA in anthropology from ISCTE in 2021. My research is on the anthropology of place, focusing on Japanese traditional religions. I seek to understand the relationships between practices and places of religious worship in Japan, and how these constitute religious life and reconfigure processes of secularisation particular to the Japanese context. In the past, I have devoted my research to philosophical and theoretical aspects of anthropology, namely, to issues related to intercultural translation, ethnocentrism, objectivity, and relativism, drawing, in particular, on three philosophical traditions (pragmatism, hermeneutics, and phenomenology).
