I am living and working in beautiful Lisbon, Portugal.


The brain is one of the most complex systems in the universe and we have not yet reached a full understanding of its working principles.

I apply my background in physics to questions from neuroscience, in order to develop experimentally testable and predictive models.

I want to find out about how brains evolved to perform adaptation and canonical computations under physical constraints.

Currently, I am trying to understand the complex interactions between the brain and body using the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster as a model organism.
