    I am a Leverhulme Research Fellow working at the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences at the University of Edinburgh. In my current project I investigate top-down mechanisms of visual memory during ageing in healthy and neuro-degenerate populations. Previously, I was at University of Lisbon, department of Psychology, funded through an Individual Research Fellowship awarded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia. This project investigated stimulus plausibility and contextual congruency of visual and linguistic information in verification tasks using behavioural (mouse-tracking) and imaging (EEG) techniques. Some time ago, I was a PhD and a Post-Doc at Institute of Language, Cognition and Computation of the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh investigating the interaction of visual attention and sentence processing during communicative, mainly language production, tasks situated in photo-realistic visual contexts. In this work, I combined experimental eye-tracking research with computational modelling.
