I am Brazilian PhD and Health, Technology and Engineering graduate certificate student at the University of Southern California, since August 2012.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Brasília (Brazil) in July 2012, where I conducted my research at the Digital Signal Processing Group and at the Medical Imaging and Signal Processing Group. I worked under supervision of Professors João Luiz Carvalho and Ricardo Lopes de Queiroz. Also, my professional experience includes three years as mathematics and physics tutor and teacher for high school and pre-admission level students.
In 2011, I was awarded with the second prize of best student paper in Latin America by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, for my introductory work with parallel imaging (see publications). The results of this research were also presented on 2012 ISMRM and IEEE EMBC conferences.
In addition, I was a “rondonista” during one year and a half (between 2008 and 2010), working with students from the University of Brasília and from the State University of Roraima, and professionals of the Brazilian Army and the Ministry of Defense. This is a volunteer project that takes undergrads from various universities to assist and learn in deprived communities around Brazil.
