Dr. Limão is Assistant History of Art Teacher at the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, Universidade Nova in Lisbon, a Researcher at the History of Art Institute, and Coordinator of the academic project ENCONTRHARTE (Encontros de História da Arte da Antiguidade). She holds her degrees from the Universidade Nova, and her research interests are architecture, sculpture, painting and mosaics in Classical and Late Antiquity, particularly as are found in Portugal. Dr. Limão strongly believes in the value of investigating the history of art, and how this aids communication: it enlightens the understanding of our contemporary world. She works on using innovative audio-visual media to provide a new view of Antiquity, and to allow greater access to scientific issues. Dr. Limão is an AIA Kress Lecturer for 2018/2019.
