João Nunes joined the Department in September 2014. Previously, he was a Research Fellow at the University of Warwick. He received his PhD and MSc from Aberystwyth University, and his first degree from the New University of Lisbon. He has held visiting positions at the Gothenburg Centre for Globalization and Development and the University of São Paulo.
His research on global health and Brazil’s health system has been featured in the University of York’s research pages and is also an impact case-study.
João is working on a new research and impact project in partnership with quilombola social movements in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Quilombolas are descendants of Africans who escaped captivity and enslavement, forming separate communities with complex relations with the rest of Brazilian society. The project considers the health of quilombola communities and its connection with conflicts over land. Please see below the video of a March 2022 field trip.
