Diogo Miguel Goncalves Fortes


Diogo Fortes graduated with highest distinction from the University of Virginia in 2019 with a B.A. in Neuroscience. During his time at UVa, Diogo worked as a research assistant in collaborative projects between the labs of Dr. Jessica Connelly and Dr. James Morris, examining epigenetic and neural markers of individual variability in human social perception. He also worked on an ergonomics project with Dr. Rupa Valdez, incorporating the experiences and preferences of parents and educators in designing a device for monitoring and preventing self-injurious behavior in children with ASD. Diogo is particularly interested in investigating developmental changes in individual brain connectivity, along with their cognitive and perceptual correlates, and wishes to pursue an MD-PhD dual degree. He is currently a Developmental Psychopathology and Social Neuroscience Fellow at the Yale Social and Affective Neuroscience of Autism Program.
