Biography: Filipa Magalhães concluded her Doctoral Degree at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, in the field of Musicology, with a dissertation entitled “A música já não pode viver sozinha”: da interação rumo à identidade na obra de Constança Capdeville. She worked on a set of music-theatre compositions by Capdeville with the purpose of recovering them through documentation. She focused on an interdisciplinary framework that included preservation, computer sciences, digital philology and musical analysis studies, enabling her to expand her technical skills in the field of musicology. In her early career stage, her capacity to achieve the level of excellence expected of a mature international scholar reflects through the expansion made in the field of contemporary Portuguese music preservation with the publication of 4 articles in international peer-reviewed journals and 3 conference proceedings, also presenting papers at 18 international conferences.
