new I received a second 2010-2011 NVIDIA Fellowship .


Coming from a loving and supportive portuguese family, I was born in France where I graduated with two M.Sc. in computer science (Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence from UTBM and ENSISA/UHA).

Attracted by multicultural experiences and highly motivated by exploring intellectual opportunities abroad, I studied in Brazil (PUC-Rio), South Korea (CBNU) and Switzerland (CERN) before coming to the United States (MIT) to complete my degrees in Jim DiCarlo's Lab.

I am now very excited to be joining the BCS (Brain and Computer Sciences) PhD program and working in its collaborative multidisciplinary environment. I am currently a member of the DiCarlo Lab and the Sinha Lab for Vision Research at MIT, and the Cox Visual Neuroscience Group at Rowland/Harvard.

My current interests are in high-throughput computational neuroscience and biology-inspired silicon intelligence with emphasis on vision. I divide my spare time between sports, traveling and managing the music association I co-founded.
