I always tried to challenge and improve myself. I completed my Ph.D. in sport science at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, with a focus on athletes’ performance and psychological, hormonal, and autonomic responses. After my Ph.D. I worked as a temporary professor at a university in Brazil, teaching disciplines in the Sports Science area, and also supervise students on projects in the psychophysiological responses and sports performance. 

Nevertheless, I felt that I needed to further my career. I already spend one year in Wales during my Ph.D., however, it was not enough. That´s when I saw on the website Times Higher Education a job offer for a postdoctoral position here at the Faculty of Sports Studies. I applied for the job and in December of 2020, I received a positive response. I remember that I was nervous but excited to get out of my comfort zone and living in another country with a different culture and language.  

I started the job in May. Since then I have had good support from the university and especially from my department. The Faculty has great facilities and Brno is a lovely city, with interesting architecture, several options for culture, and good places to drink coffee. I am happy to stay here and I hope that I can share my academic knowledge and my experiences and I will be glad to help and learn with the Fsps community.
