About me

I am a Research Fellow in the group of Prof. John Terry in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter, Wellcome Trust Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis.

I graduated with a BSc in Physical Engineering, then I pursued a MSc in Physics, both at the University of Aveiro (Portugal), and finally I got a PhD in Physics (in a joint doctoral program of Universities of Minho, Aveiro and Porto). My research in theoretical neuroscience started with my master’s thesis, in which I studied stochastic resonance in neuronal networks. During my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Alexander Goltsev, I studied phase transitions, critical phenomena, bifurcations, and nonlinear phenomena in neuronal networks. In the last year of my PhD I have become interested in epilepsy, particularly on how to anticipate epileptic seizures. In April 2015 I joined the group of Prof. John Terry at the University of Exeter, where I have been studying the mechanisms of seizure emergence as well as a mathematical framework to quantitatively predict which brain regions are most responsible for seizure generation. In my spare time I enjoy reading literature, and I write science popularization articles as a hobby.
