About Me

My name is Teresa Carvalho and I'm an associate professor at the University of Aveiro. My work broadly concentrates on the analyses of changes in public policies and its effects in professional groups. More specifically, my focus is on welfare state transformations under New Public Management, managerialism and governance and in its effects on the institutional and professional context. My approach has been to study these processes in the health and higher education sector and in academics, nurses and doctors. I conduct research both on each professional group, focusing in their internal differences, and on a comparative perspective between them. To this interprofessional perspective, I also add the international comparison, developing research specifically analysing changes in the academic profession in several different national contexts. The intraprofessional focus takes into consideration internal segmentation and particularly gender differences in academia. In studying these change processes, I have developed and employed a range of methodologies, using qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods in the research ;   

At larger scale, I am interested in the relation between structural and agency processes that promote or enable transformations in the way contemporaneous societies are currently ;
