I obtained my BSc in Psychology at the University of Strasbourg (France) and at the University of Quebec in Montreal (Canada). Then, I received a Master degree in clinical and cognitive neuropsychology also from the University of Strasbourg. After this, I did a PhD at PUC-Rio (Brazil), using experimental designs to investigate the impact of mood and third-person perspective on awareness in AD patients. As part of my PhD, I did a one-year visiting research internship at the Taub Institute - Columbia University (USA), exploring awareness and metacognition in cognitive aging and neurodegenerative diseases and working with neuroimaging techniques to explore the neuroanatomic correlates of metacognition in cognitively diverse older adults. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Mograbilab - PUC-Rio working on the validation and adaptation of the Cognitive Stimulation Therapy for the Brazilian population. I’m also a lecturer (adjunct professor) on developmental psychology and psychology of aging at UNIGRANRIO (Brazil).
