I am originally from Brazil and graduated there in biomedicine in 2012. After concluding my master`s degree I had the amazing opportunity of coming to Canada for my PhD degree. I am now finishing my first year of the neuroscience program at the University of Calgary, developing a project related to SIDS. I had the first contact with the SCS at the casino night in October 2016. I had a great moment among SCS members which gave a whole new meaning to my PhD. Therefore I joined the board as a director in November 2016 and I hope to contribute to SCS in the same positive way SCS is contributing to my life.
