Interests

My research focuses on cognitive performance in elderly people with low education. In Brazil I study the relationship between cognition, frailty and emotional variables in elderly from rural communities. At the University of Cambridge I am studying new cognitive assessment tools for elderly Brazilians with low education and study coping, burden and depression in caregivers from two different countries.
