New face at MIB: Ana Teresa Queiroga
MIB welcomes new PhD student from Portugal.
Graduated in Biomedical Engineering by the University of Minho (Braga), Ana Teresa comes from Penafiel, Portugal.
After having visited MIB for about 9 months during the final year of her master's studies, during which she developed her thesis project entitled "Brain Fingerprints of Musical Complexity during Jazz Improvisation" under the supervision of Henrique Fernandes (MIB) and Professor Victor Alves (UMinho), she is now back as a PhD student.
Extending on her previous work, Ana Teresa will continue to focus on the improvisation paradigm, seeking to adopt a multimodal approach (neural, behavioural and physiological measures) to study the intra- and inter-brain neural effects that emerge when individuals interplay during music improvisation.
Ana Teresa considers herself a science enthusiast drawn to multidisciplinary projects and is therefore very excited to see what the next 3 years have in store and how she will be able to further broaden her areas of interest in the music and neuroscience field.
