A highlight of my research includes giving a TEDx Talk on romantic self-sabotage. This talk has been well received globally and was featured in the TED series titled “How to Be a Better Human”.
I enjoy promoting scientific research to engage both academics and members of the general public, and I believe in creating awareness, promoting individual responsibility, and challenging people to act towards changing their reality. Overall, my work has received extensive media coverage including TV and radio interviews, newspaper articles and publications on The Conversation, ABC News and Psychology Today.

Overall, I am passionate about people and the expression of life. I am originally from Brazil and I have travelled and lived in many places around the world. I currently live in Brisbane, Australia, with my husband Matthew, our two cats Tigre and Patera, our Miniature Pinscher, Lobinha, and our Doberman, Urso.
