Education and Carrer
I earned my M.D. degree, residence in Radiology, and Ph.D. degree in Neurosciences from the State University of Campinas, Brazil, to which I joined the faculty as a Professor of Radiology. I completed my post-doctoral research in Radiology at the Johns Hopkins University and accepted a position as a Research Associate, subsequently as an Assistant Professor, and eventually as an Associate Professor of Radiology, in the MRI Research Division, in 2018. I am a neuroscientist with unique expertise in neuroradiology, physics, and computational analysis. I work on technology development and translational research. I published more than 100 journal articles, one book, and hold two patents.
My work focuses on techniques for imaging post-processing, quantification, and multimodal brain MRI analysis. I apply these techniques to study normal brain development, neurodegenerative disorders, to characterize MRI patterns, and to access relationship between brain damage and functional deficits. I am also responsible for the creation of multiple electronic brain atlases, extensively used by the neuroimaging community. My work also involves BigData and high-throughput analysis, by applying artificial intelligence to retrieve latent features that characterize certain clinical conditions.
