I graduated in Psychology from the Pontific Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP) in 2006. From the beginning of 2005 to the end of 2006, I was admitted to a specialization course in clinical and research neuropsychology at the Institute of Psychiatry of the Medical School of the University of São Paulo (IPq-HCFMUSP), which I completed simultaneously with the end of my graduation. From 2007 to 2009, I worked as a neuropsychologist in a private office and as research assistant at the Old Age Project (Programa Terceira idade, Institute of Psychiatry of the Medical School of the University of São Paulo), where I conducted research on neuropsychology of dementia, and epidemiology of functional impairment in older people. From 2010 to 2012, I specialized in behavioral therapy from Nucleo Paradigma de Analise do Comportamento (São Paulo, Brazil). In 2014, I completed a Master’s Degree in Experimental Psychology from the Institute of Psychology of the University of Sao Paulo in 2014, with a focus on memory reconsolidation and Pavlovian conditioning in humans. Currently, I work as a neuropsychologist and behavioral therapist in my own private office and I am a PhD student in experimental psychology. The focus of my current research is Pavlovian conditioning and memory reconsolidation in humans.
My areas of research interest include clinical neuropsychology, with a focus on dementia, Pavlovian conditioning in humans, and memory reconsolidation.
