Natália Castelo Branco Matos

Natália Matos, originally from Ceará, Brazil, is currently a third-year Ph.D. student in neuroscience at Yale. She has joined professor Damon Clark's lab, where she investigates the principles and mechanisms of visual processing in fruit flies. She hopes to uncover specific details on how neural circuits drive behavior while keeping an eye on the bigger picture inherent to neuroscientific research. To achieve this last goal, Natália has co-funded a discussion group on the philosophy of neuroscience that has recently expanded into a speaker series. In her spare time, she plays video games, audits philosophy classes, and hangs out with her friends.
