BIOGRAPHY

I hold a MSc in Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering from Faculty of Sciences of University of Lisbon since 2014. I am a research team member at the Institute of Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering (IBEB), University of Lisbon, since 2013, with specialisation in Neuroimaging. In particular, I have been focused on developing multimodal biomarkers for clinical analysis. In 2015, I worked at the Instituto Luso-Ilírio para o Desenvolvimento Humano, where I developed museum activities using bio-signals (brain and non-brain signals) combined with user-computer interfaces. I am now a PhD Student at IBEB and teh Faculty of Medicina of the University of Lisbon and I have been granted a FCT-funded fellowship under the Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics Doctoral Programme (M2B). My research is now focused on developing a classification model based on multimodal data, including genetics, psychological assessments and magnetic resonance imaging (both structural and functional), with the final goal of predicting the onset of schizophrenia. My work is closely supervised by Diana Prata and Hugo Ferreira.
