Dr. Santos has conducted extensive ethnographic field research in China since the late 1990s. His work on contemporary China explores new approaches to questions of modernity, subjectivity, and social and technological transformation. His research has featured in leading journals such as Current Anthropology, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, Modern Asian Studies, Journal of Family History, and Technology and Culture (forthcoming). He is the co-editor of Chinese Kinship (Routledge, 2009) and Transforming Patriarchy (U of Washington Press, 2017).

He has recently completed a monograph – entitled Intimate Modernities. Reassembling Love, Marriage, and Family Life in Rural South China 1970s-2010s – under contract with the University of Washington Press that focuses on the remaking of family and community lives in times of changing infrastructures of everyday life. It will be the first ethnography of a South Chinese rural community based on two decades of longitudinal research. His first monograph - entitled The Anthropological School of Coimbra 1885-1950 (Imprensa de Ciências Sociais, 2005) - revisited the history of anthropology and racial science in Western Europe, reflecting his interdisciplinary training in socio-cultural anthropology and science and technology studies.
