I have a degree in Biomedicine at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (2015-2019), with emphasis on pharmacology and imaging. During graduation, I spent 3 years in a research group focusing in Memory, where I’ve learned a lot about animal model behavioral tests. During these years I was able to develop my own research project, which aimed to unravel the role of the endocannabinoid system in behavioral flexibility and forgetfulness. I completed my internship at the company SIR – Serviço Integrado de Radiologia (Porto Alegre – RS), for which I was hired. There I worked for 5 months, assisting in the realization of scientific and clinical projects, post-processing of images, quality control and organization of radiological services in hospitals and private clinics. In the search for an internship, I ended up meeting Professor Eduardo Zimmer, and soon I saw that his laboratory had as a research focus my two passions: neuroscience and imaging. Currently I’m doing my Masters in Biochemistry at UFRGS, under the guidance of Professor Eduardo Zimmer, and my research focuses on volumetric brain analysis of MRI images.
I am from a small city in the interior of Rio Grande do Sul (South of Brazil) called Parobé. Since I started my graduation I live in Porto Alegre, a city that I fall in love with more and more. In my free time I love hanging out with my friends, spending time with my family, cook with my boyfriend and watch a lot of series and films. I am extremely passionate about nature, especially the beach. I also really like to be able to do charity actions, helping people really makes me happy.
