Marcela Matos is a clinical psychologist and auxiliary research fellow at the Center for Research in Neuropsychology and Cognitive Behavioral Intervention (CINEICC), at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, University of Coimbra (UC), in Portugal. Since 2006, she has done intensive training and developed systematic research in third wave psychological approaches and contemplative practices (e.g., Compassion, Mindfulness) and in evolutionary clinical psychology (e.g., social rank theory). In particular, she has worked and trained in Compassion Focused Therapy with Professor Paul Gilbert, President and Founder of the Compassionate Mind Foundation and Professor at the University of Derby (United Kingdom). She completed her PhD on “Shame memories that shape who we are” in 2012, where she investigated how early shame experiences are structured as traumatic memories that become central to personal identity and increase vulnerability to psychopathology. At the moment, her main research focus is on developing, implementing and testing the efficacy of compassion and mindfulness-based group interventions in promoting mental and physical well-being in several populations, and also investigating their impact on biomarkers and epigenetic mechanisms of prosociality and stress. She is involved in several international research projects related to contextual behavioural psychological approaches and contemplative interventions (i.e., compassion, mindfulness, acceptance), well-being and psychopathology. Specifically, she is the Principal Investigator of international research projects such as the “Compassionate Schools: Development and efficacy study of a compassion based intervention to promote teachers and children wellbeing", "Compassion, social connectedness and trauma resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic: A multi-national study", “BEKAM: Be Kindly Aware for Motherhood: A mindfulness and compassion based intervention for the promotion of perinatal and postpartum health and well-being”, or "Cultivating your compassionate self: A randomized control trial of a compassion imagery intervention”. In addition, she is a researcher/collaborator in funded international and national projects, such as the European H2020 Project “NoHoW: Evidence-based ICT tools for weight loss maintenance”, "Riseup-PPD - Research Innovation and Sustainable Pan-European Network in Peripartum Depression Disorder", "eBEfree - An ICT adaptation of BEfree: An app-delivered programme based on mindfulness, values and compassion for binge eating”, or the transcultural project “Toward the understanding of the cross-cultural differences in the meaning and experience of compassion and the universality of a compassion facial expression”. She has also been collaborating in several research projects exploring compassion, shame, self-criticism and emotion regulation, and in graduate and postgraduate students' supervisions, with renowned researchers around the world and research units, such as the Centre for Compassion Research and Training, at the University of Derby (UK), the University of Queensland (Australia), Comenius University (Slovakia) or the University of Grenoble Alpes (France). In 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, she was selected to participate as a New Investigator in the Mind and Life Summer Research Institute, on themes "Intersubjectivity and Social Connectivity", “Engaging Cultural Difference and Human Diversity”, "Exploring Mental Habits: Contemplative Practices and Interventions for Individual and Social Flourishing", and "Cultivating Prosocial Development Across the Lifespan: Contexts, Relationships, and Contemplative Practices", taking place at the Garrison Institute, New York, USA. She is a member of the Portuguese Association for Mindfulness and of the International Compassionate Mind Foundation.
