My primary academic focus is to understand the cognitive and neural processes underlying episodic memory. Episodic memory enables mental time travel, allowing us to relive specific, personally experienced events tied in time and place.
With this purpose, I use behavioral and cognitive testing in combination with advanced analysis methods (e.g., multivariate pattern analysis – MVPA) applied to high-temporal resolution brain data (Electroencephalography – EEG). This approach allows the investigation of memory reactivation as it unfolds as well as its consequences for current and future thinking and behaviour.
I have also collaborations with the Cognitive Neuroscience Group at the University of Algarve (Portugal) in research projects concerning reading disabilities in children and adults with dyslexia.
I teach Cognitive Psychology and Neuropsychology both the undergraduate (Psychology Program) and master level (International Psychology Master). I am also supervising master and bachelor theses, as well as training research assistants.
I have also worked as a Teaching Assistant (2005-2011) and as an Invited Assistant Professor (2011-2013) at the Psychology Department of University of Algarve in Portugal. During that time, my teaching duties have included preparing material for lectures, seminars, hands-on practical classes and exercises, arranging exams, grading students, administration responsibilities, and supervising internships (clinical neuropsychology practice).
