Marcela Matos is a research fellow at the Center for Research in Neuropsychology and Cognitive Behavioral Intervention (CINEICC), University of Coimbra (UC), and holds a PhD in Clinical Psychology (2012) and a Psychology degree (2004) both from UC. She has done intensive training and developed systematic research in contextual behavioral psychological approaches and interventions (e.g. Compassion Focused Therapy, CFT; Compassionate Mind Training, CMT; Mindfulness). During her PhD, MM investigated how shame experiences are structured as traumatic memories that become central to personal identity and increase vulnerability to psychopathology. Currently, MM has been interested in developing, implementing and testing the efficacy of compassion-based psychological interventions in promoting mental and biophysiological health and wellbeing in different populations. She is an expert in shame, compassion and compassion-focused interventions. MM has a strong track record in disseminating her research, with 74 papers published in peer reviewed international journals [H Index Scopus 23/ G.Scholar 36]. Her research has contributed to advance the body of knowledge in these fields and opened new research avenues (e.g. shame memories, fears of compassion, efficacy of CMT). This expertise is recognized by her leadership in international research projects, invitations to keynote speaking, and scientific awards, scholarships and distinctions from international entities (e.g. Mind & Life Institute). Her work is highly cited, including in high impact science journals. MM is involved in several international research projects related to contextual behavioral psychological approaches and interventions (e.g. compassion), well-being and psychopathology, which documents her leadership skills and competence in scientific management. Specifically, she is the PI of international research projects such as the 'Compassionate Schools: Development and efficacy study of a compassionate mind training program to promote teachers and pupils' wellbeing', 'Compassion, social connectedness and trauma resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic: A multi-national study', or 'Cultivating your compassionate self: A RCT of a compassion imagery intervention'. In addition, she is a researcher in funded international and national projects: e.g., European H2020 Project 'NoHoW: Evidence-based ICT tools for weight loss maintenance', COST Action 'Riseup-PPD - Research Innovation and Sustainable Pan-European Network in Peripartum Depression Disorder', 'EIT Health Campus', 'eBEfree - An ICT adaptation of BEfree: An app-delivered program based on mindfulness, values and compassion for binge eating', 'Mind program for cancer patients: A RCT testing the program´s cost-effectiveness and efficacy in changing psychobiological outcomes in women with breast cancer'. MM has also been collaborating in several other research projects exploring compassion, shame, and emotion regulation and in graduate /postgraduate students' supervisions with international researchers and research units (e.g. University of Grenoble Alpes; University of Queensland; Mejiro University). MM has been acting as reviewer in various scientific journals and as project evaluator for international funding agencies (French national program for clinical research, PHRCN). MM supervised 4 PhD, 19 Msc and 9 Honors students. She was in the jury of PhD and Msc theses, including as main opponent, and has been actively collaborating with Doctoral and Master courses of FPCEUC. In addition to her scientific activity, MM has participated in several science communication and outreach activities including TEDx, workshops/webinars (e.g. for the general public, teachers, health professionals), broadcast and print Media. MM collaborates as Psychologist in the UPC3-Cognitive-Behavioral Clinical Psychology Unit at University of Coimbra, and is a member of the Portuguese Association of Mindfulness and the Compassionate Mind Foundation UK.
