Dr. Bruno Miranda

Researcher & Assistant Professor at the Institute of Physiology – Lisbon School of Medicine

Bruno Miranda obtained is Medical degree at the University of Lisbon and his PhD degree in Neuroscience at the University College of London (being also integrated as part of the International Neurocience Doctoral Programme at the Champalimaud Foundation). His graduation work was on the computational models — often used in machine-learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), and neural signatures for different reinforcement learning strategies which can be used to guide decision-making, under the supervision of Doctor Steven Kennerley and Professor Peter Dayan (2017 Brain Prize). From a clinical perspective he obtained his title of Specialist in Neurology in Lisbon and has undertaken in-depth training in epidemiological and patient-oriented research skills on neurodegenerative and cerebrovascular disorders.

He is currently a Neurologist, Junior Researcher and Assistant Professor at the Lisbon School of Medicine of the University of Lisbon; and a Clinical Researcher at the Institute of Molecular Medicine. His neuroscience research is focused on how the basic principles of human behaviour can be relevant to improve human-environmental interactions through urban (neurourbanism) and architectural (neuroarchitecture) design.

His clinical research is also focused on applying ML/AI tools to provide biomonitoring and digital health solutions. The overall experimental approach combines expertise in behavioural analysis, computational modelling, as well as neurophysiology and neuroimaging techniques.
