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.
It's all about lifestyle.
