I am an enthusiast for the brain and for finding new ways to explore it. I hold a Master in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Lisbon, and I am currently at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London where I am doing my PhD in Neuroimaging. I mainly work in the development of new methods for Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging, but also with other MRI techniques. As part of the Natbrainlab, I am also very interested in Neuroanatomy and brain connectivity in both healthy and diseased states. When I am not getting my head around all this, I am usually practising some sports (football, tennis, swimming, …), soaking up some culture (cinema, reading, astronomy) or hanging out with friends!
