She has clinical experience with group interventions (e.g., grief), neuropsychological assessment and group and individual cognitive stimulation with different populations. Her research interests have been focused on the areas of interface between Psycho-Oncology and Neuropsychology, more specifically on the study of cancer-related cognitive impairment. She has completed a Master’s thesis in this area, having assessed the perceived cognitive functioning of breast cancer survivors. Furthermore, she participated in an exploratory project at a specialized support center for patients with breast cancer, which aimed to characterize cognitive and emotional aspects in this population.
This project is part of her PhD thesis, and she is the coordinator of this research.
