Pedro Costa Klein

Originally from Brazil, I studied Computer Science at the University of Santa Cruz do Sul (Brazil) and at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS, Brazil). I started a Doctorate at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU, Germany) in 2017, and then moved to a PhD in the Interdisciplinary Program in Health Sciences at the University of Cologne in 2019. During my master's degree, from 2014 to 2016, I gained scientific knowledge at computer vision applied to medical imaging at the Virtual Reality Group, at PUCRS. After completing my master, from 2017 to 2018, I worked for prof. Kambeitz at the LMU studying the mechanisms underlying brain's functioning using neuronal simulation models, aiming at the mechanistic understanding of aberrant whole-brain functional connectivitiy observed in patients with schizophrenia. I joined Kambeitz Lab in April 2019 and currently, I'm involved in a PhD project following this line of research.
