About Me

Hello there

We are currently moving houses as the term starts again in early September.

We may start to accept guests again after that =)


Heeeeeeeeey everyone!

This is a shared profile - for me and my girlfriend!

I'm Rodrigo, a sophisticated man who loves science and an awesome lifestyle. Licensed biologist from University of Brazil (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro--UFRJ), I was awarded with my M.Sc in Neuroscience by the Biomedical Sciences Institute of University of Brazil (PCM/UFRJ) in 2013. Now, I am doing my Ph.D in Cybernetics at University of Reading. I have experience in a wide range of fields, Computational Neuroscience, Brain Evolution, Bioinformatics (Molecular Docking and Rational Drug Design), Astrobiology and Paleontology (mostly three-dimentional modeling usages and vertebrate paleontology).

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, a Fluminense Football Club fan,lover and supporter. Also, I'm a Hung Kuen Kung Fu practitioner, a whisky enthusiast and an occasional dancer with some Zouk and Brazilian Forró knowledge. Finally, I am also Evolutionary Psychology literate with certain degree of Pick Up Art theoretical and practical knowledge from the classics to the more up to date methods.

Today, at the Brain Embodiment Laboratory, I am dealing with the effects of lesions in neuronal networks, specially, how they disrupt behaviors and how stem cells integrate to restore function. Besides that, I am also developing biological-inspired complex network models and doing some work with astrobiology and public outreach.

Fighter, scientist and musician. A lover of elegance looking for amazing experiences. And a polymath above all.

Larissa, who is 22 years old, is finishing her undergraduate course at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, where she studies Biomedical Sciences. During 2014-2015 she will be an exchange student at the University of Reading, UK, studying Neuroscience and developing a research project.

She is very shy at the beginning, but once you get to know her, she turns to be friendly. She is also very open-minded and kind.

She loves to read (a pleasure that university has stolen), watch movies (romance, drama, adventure and DISNEY ones!) and series (HIMYM, OUAT, GoT, TB, OITNB, OB and so on), and listen to music. Other hobbies include gym, writing, traveling and, of course, pampering her cat.


It's all about lifestyle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have hosted several surfers in the new year's eve in Brazil. It was wonderful, an amazing experience.

Also have hosted a girl in England - another great time.

Now we are planning to surf! But, of course, we can also host and attend to meetings : )


Amazing experiences and new lovely friends, share a lot of moments and knowledge =D
