I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Physics, in the UNESP - São Paulo State University, Botucatu, São Paulo with undergraduate experiences in radiology laboratories, radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, and magnetic resonance theories and practice. I had two main undergraduate internships: with environmental stable isotopes, in the Center for Environmental Stable Isotopes and Liquid Nitrogen, IBB-UNESP, and with functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging + Electroencephalography (EEG-fMRI) technique, in the Gleb Wataghin Physics Institute (IFGW) of the University of Campinas (UNICAMP). I have a Master's degree and Ph.D. in Neuroscience (UNICAMP) working with several computational techniques applied to MRI data of Epilepsy patients. Currently, I am working in the Neuroimaging Laboratory, (Department of Neurology, UNICAMP) as a Research Physicist applying multimodal techniques in the fields of Neuroscience and Neurophysics.
