Before entering graduate school, I did some work in science journalism:

 

De Freitas, J. (2013). Seeking the atom of attention. Discover

De Freitas, J. (2012). Disappearing hand trick wins best illusion of 2012. Nature

De Freitas, J. (2012). Why is memory so good and so bad? Scientific American Mind. 

De Freitas, J., and Liverence, B. M. (2012). The secrets of your brain’s zoom lens. Scientific American Mind

I'm a humble student (blue belt) of Brazilian jiu jitsu.

Previously, I was a Bronze Ironman All World Triathlete.
