Mariana is an International PhD student in Health Science with funding from the Brazilian Government (CAPES). She received her BS and MS in Kinesiology from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). Her main research interests are in the field of motor control. Mariana has been studying how the brain integrates sensory information during manipulation tasks using Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) for the past 6 years. At the University of Delaware, Mariana will study another piece of the puzzle: how the body responds to sensory inputs in order to maintain balance during gait. Mariana loves outdoor activities, ballet, and movies.
