I am originally a biomedical scientist, who transitioned into Psychological research after my Master's. I first completed a Master's in Psychobiology at Universidade Federal de São Paulo (Brazil), studying sexual behaviour in mice, and went on to complete a Master's in Psychological Research Methods at the University of Sheffield. There, I focused on social psychology, studying intergroup processes. Currently, I am on my first year of PhD at KU Leuven. My research encompasses issues in theoretical psychology as well as quantitative methods, through a philosophical perspective. More specifically, I study how meta-analyses have been used in the psychological research process, to test and develop psychological theories.
