I received my BSc in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience from the University of Westminster last year. My dissertation was an electrophysiological study designed to investigate how compatible and incompatible visual-motor experience with actions, influences motor cortex activation to validate the use of sensorimotor alpha suppression as measure to test Hayes’ associative learning account in the infant population.

During my BSc studies, I have volunteered for two years at the CBCD-babylab in London where I developed a strong interest for brain development, particularly on how environmental, socio-cultural and familial risk factors contribute to brain connectivity and neuronal development during the first two years of life.

Furthermore, I am very interested in working with neuroimaging techniques such as near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to investigate how different networks, develop over time and under specific conditions.

I am currently working on the BRIGHT project as a research assistant.
