I’m Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL), and I’m also affiliated with the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. My research focuses on vocal communication, music, and emotion.

How do we recognize emotions from vocal expressions? How does our brain gain meaning from sound? How does musical experience affect auditory and emotional skills? I address these and related questions using experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience approaches.
