About Me

Social and Decision Neuroscience Ph.D. @ Caltech

I research the neuroscience of poverty and discrimination. My motivation directly stems from my experiences growing up in a disadvantaged neighborhood in Brazil. I have a background in Economics, including an MSc from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. When I started my studies at Brigham Young University, I became determined to dedicate my career to helping inform and create effective policies to lift those in poverty.
