Bioengineer by training, I am now working to be a neuroscientist. During my studies, I had the opportunity to do an internship at King’s College in London and my master thesis at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. There, I discovered my interest in behavioural neuroscience. After, I moved to the Champalimaud Foundation and become stoked about the power of system neuroscience.
Now, at ICM, I want to apply my expertise to a more translational approach but still work with mice. I aim to investigate both the role of psychedelics (in particular LSD) in neuronal plasticity and the circuits underlying extreme automatization and behavioural flexibility.
I am an advocate for open science and science communication.
