Paulo Guirro Laurence


Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie (UPM). Centro de Ciências Biológicas e da Saúde (CCBS)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

I have a Bachelor's of education degree (2015) in Biology and a Bachelor's degree (2016) in Biological Sciences, along with a Master's degree (2018) and a Ph.D. (2021) in Developmental Disorders, all of which I earned from Mackenzie Presbyterian University. During my Ph.D., I was part of the Building Blocks of Cognition laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley. Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher at Mackenzie Presbyterian University, and I am affiliated with the Laboratory of Cognitive and Social Neuroscience. I also have the privilege of serving as a guest lecturer in the Lato Sensu programs in Neuroscience and Applied Psychology, as well as in the program for Neuroscience applied to Education and Learning, all within the same university. My academic journey has been quite distinctive, and I've been fortunate to receive various prestigious scholarships. Back in my undergraduate years, I was honored to be granted the CNPq Undergraduate Research Scholarship (PIBIC-CNPq), and I also had the opportunity to work as a Mackpesquisa Student-Research fellow. The support for my Master's studies came through a CAPES scholarship, and my Ph.D. research was funded by a FAPESP scholarship, which also covers my postdoctoral studies. My academic interests and research span a wide spectrum of topics in cognitive sciences, including cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and developmental neuroscience. I've also developed expertise in areas like cognitive development, fluid reasoning, visual processing, and eye-tracking methodologies. Additionally, I am well-versed in advanced statistical analysis techniques and maintain a strong interest in the field of Data Science. Through my academic journey, I've remained committed to advancing knowledge in these domains through my contributions in various publications. My work lies at the crossroads of these interdisciplinary disciplines, aiming to illuminate the intricate mechanisms that underlie human cognition and learning processes. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
