Research interests

My main research interests focus on cognitive and computational neuroscience, particularly reinforcement learning. My current aim is to investigate the neural and computational mechanisms by which humans learn how to seek rewards and avoid punishments. For this I employ multimodal brain imaging (behaviour, simultaneous EEG-fMRI in 3T and 7T systems) as well as computational modelling. During my PhD (University of Minho), I studied the impact of acute stress on the neurocomputational mechanisms of reinforcement learning.
