I graduated in Physics at the University of São Paulo (USP - São Carlos) in 1991, got an MSc in Physics (Cristallography) also at USP - São Carlos in 1994, then a PhD (Image Processing) at King's College London (University of London) in 1999. In 2000-2002 I worked at Instituto de Pesquisas Eldorado as a software developer for Motorola applications. I went back to academia for a post-doc (brain MR image processing) at University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in 2002 until 2004, when I became an assistant professor at the Physics Institute of this university. In 2005 Roberto Covolan conceived the Neurophysics group, which started off with him and myself, and was later joined by Rickson Mesquita. Since then I've been mainly working with MR spectroscopy, but also with other MR-based and not-MR-based techniques (such as EEG) for brain studies of all sorts.
