I am an Associate Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (FEEC), University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil. I am also the co-founder and currently  Director of the Medical Image Computing lab (MICLab). I hold a research fellowship from the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development and I am an investigator of the Brazilian Institute of Neuroscience and Neurotechnology (BRAINN). I am also a full member of the Brazilian Society of Biomedical Engineering and a senior member of the IEEE. I’ve got a B.Eng. (Electrical Engineering) in 1993 at University of Campinas (UNICAMP). After 7 years in the industry and an MBA at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV), I returned to UNICAMP, where I completed both a M.Sc. (2004) and a Ph.D. (2009). I held fellowships at The McConnell Brain Imaging Center (BIC), Montreal Neurological Institut, McGill University, Canada and at the Medical Imaging Processing Group (MIPG), Pearlman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. I also spent one month as a visiting Professor at the Università degli studi di Verona (Dipartimento di Informatica).

    My research field is Medical Image Processing and Analysis, focused particularly on Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the brain. Alongside with regular undergraduate and graduate courses, I offer Image Processing and Deep Learning courses for the community outside the University. Since 2012 I’m also involved in programming workshops for children and adolescents and have an active role in bridging the gender gap in STEM fields.
