Marisa Filipe is a specialist in Clinical and Health Psychology and Neuropsychology. She received a Master's degree in Clinical and Health Psychology and a Ph.D. degree in Psychology at the University of Porto. Her academic and professional interests have been focused on the understanding of language and executive functions in both typically developing children and clinical populations (e.g., autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Currently, she is interested in the yet poorly understood link between language skills and executive functions by conducting high-quality empirical research on this relationship..
