Alexandra Valente is an FCT Post-doctoral Fellow of Clinical and Health Psychology. FCT is the Portuguese agency for research funding. Her host institutions are the William James Center for Research at ISPA-University Institute (Portugal) and the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington (UW, USA). Since 2018 she is Lecturer at ISPA-University Institute, at the MSc and PhD degrees in Psychology. Alexandra completed a PhD in 2012 at the University of Porto, supported by a PhD FCT Fellowship (ref. SFRH/BD/40956/2007, 45.220euro). Her research focused on the psychosocial predictors of adjustment in Portuguese individuals with chronic pain (CP). It resulted in 6 articles published in indexed journals with peer-review. These include 1 article published in 2011 at the journal Pain, a top 2 journal in the field. This paper compares the validity of 4 pain intensity rating scales. It is the most cited paper in Portugal in the field of pain. From 2013 to 2017, before kicking-off with her Post-doc Fellowship, Alexandra integrated the research teams of 2 multidisciplinary R&D projects funded by FCT at the Universities of Coimbra (FCT R&D Funding, ref. PTDC/IVC SOC/4823/2012-FCOMP-0, 96.980euro) and Minho (FCT R&D Funding, ref. PTDC/ESC/65116/2006, 90.000euro; Post-doctoral fellowship UMINHO/BPD/17/2015, 24.470euro). She coordinated the fieldwork and data analysis. This collaboration resulted in 2 papers in Q1 journals. During this period, she was Assistant Professor in BSc and MSc degrees in Psychology. She also volunteered at a health care institution in Spain between 2011 and 2013. These experiences made her to: (a) gain expertise in mixed-method research; (b) become an advocate for multidisciplinary research; (c) initiate independent scientific activities; (d) consolidate an international research network; and (e) transfer knowledge from theory to clinical practice. In 2016 Alexandra was awarded an FCT Post-doc Fellowship (SFRH/BPD/121452/2016, 114.390euro) to support a cross-cultural mixed-method study. This study focuses on the mediating and moderating role of cultural and religious background on the associations between psychosocial predictors of function and measures of adjustment to CP in patients from different countries. Preliminary findings were already published in 5 papers in Q1/Q2 journals. Since 2019 Alexandra is Principal Investigator (PI) of an R&D project funded by a BIAL Foundation Grant (ref. 188/18; 45.000euro). BIAL Foundation Grants Programme for Scientific Research is one of the main international calls for competitive funding supporting research in psychophysiology and parapsychology. The study focuses on the effects of 3 psychosocial interventions in experimentally induced pain. Since 2020 she is also PI of a longitudinal cross-cultural study focusing the impact of the COVID-19 on mental health, supported by the Portuguese Psychologists Association (OPP). It is also supported by an FCT PhD grant (2020.10251.BD, 51.583euro) which Alexandra supervises. Preliminary findings were already published in 2 papers in Q1 journals. Alexandra supervise(d): 1 PhD (FCT), 10 MSc and 1 BSc students, 1 research assistant, 5 internships. She has authored 1 book, 6 book chapters (2 international), 23 articles in indexed journals with peer-review (+4 under review), 4 papers in conference proceedings, 3 scientific reports, and 50 conference abstracts. In Feb/2021, she had been cited 850 citations according to ISI-WoS report (h-index=8). Alexandra is post-graduated in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies. She has also completed 3 Research Internships at the UW, under the supervision of Prof. Mark Jensen. She was granted supplementary training allowances to carry out such international internships, including a 2018 APED award to support international training in the field of pain (2.000euro). During the last of these internships, Alexandra completed 3 training courses in 3 psychosocial treatments for pain.
