My research career began working on Catholicism, social movements, popular religion, democratization, gender and development and I spent many years in Brazil conducting research. For my PhD thesis I lived 18 months (between 1989-1991) in Garanhuns, Pernambuco, to study liberationist Catholicism. The year as visiting professor in Recife and a more recent CAPES/NUFFIC program on Transnational Religion (with UFRGS) are also projects in this line of research. I have supervised many Master and PhD candidates with topics related to it and I am still available for such research projects.
