I’m a psychologist and neuroscientist at the Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences at the University of Porto, funded by an FCT Investigator grant. I’m also affiliated with the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience.

My research focuses on the psychology and neurobiology of vocal communication, music, and emotion. I address these topics by combining experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience approaches, in healthy individuals of all ages and in individuals with neurological and psychiatric disorders.
