He is a tenured Associate Professor of Sociology with Habilitation at the Department of Sociology of FLUP, where he teaches since 1994, and a researcher at the Institute of Sociology of the University of Porto - a R&D Unit of the national scientific and technological system that he directed between March 2010 and April 2015.

Since 2008, he is an associate researcher at the Center of Studies in Architecture and Urbanism of the University of Porto.
His research focuses on the production of social and cultural inequalities in different spatial contexts of Northern Portugal (the valleys of the rivers Ave and Sousa, and the city of Porto have been specially targeted by his research), with a special interest in the study of the sociological legacy of Pierre Bourdieu’s work. He has also been researching on housing policies and their urban and social effects. He has supervised and co-supervised Masters dissertations, PhD theses and Post-Doc researches in the fields of sociology, architecture and urbanism, and history.
His works have been presented in different Portuguese and foreign universities. He was Visiting Professor at the Institut of Political Studies of the University of Strasbourg and at the Department of Sociology of the University of Paris 8. He collaborated with the University of Rouen.
He is a member of the editorial board of the journal Cadernos de Ciências Sociais (Porto, Edições Afrontamento) and of different national and international editorial advisory boards. Among these are the journals Cidades, Comunidades e Territórios (Lisboa, Dinâmia-ISCTE), Sociétés Contemporaines (Paris, Presses de Sciences-Po), Espaces et Sociétés (Paris, Éditions érès) and Biens Symboliques/Symbolic Goods (Paris, Presses Universitaires de Vincennes). 
His works have been published in Portugal and abroad.
