Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Center of Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Karolinska Institutet

I am a Portuguese developmental neuroscientist currently living in Stockholm. I love science and babies.

I am interested in how individual (i.e. genetic susceptibilities) and environmental factors (e.g. training, society) influence behavioural and attention control early in life and beyond.

I also really like sharing and exchanging science with all audiences. At the moment, I’m training to be a parent coacher so I can share evidence-based neuroscience with families.
