I am fascinated by the dynamics of affect and cognition and, also, by the brain’s role in it. My academic experience has shown me time and again that our best chance of advancing the understanding of these complex questions is with scientific rigor and interdisciplinary efforts. Likewise, I believe it is essential to be aware of Psychology and Neuroscience’s place as historically situated human endeavors. Thus, my aim is to join technical excellence and critical attitude in research.

I investigate neural correlates of time perception at UFABC’s Timing Lab and about emotion discrimination at Developmental, Affective, and Social Neuroscience Lab in the same university.
