Hello! My name is Marta and I am one of the researchers at BRIGHT. I studied Psychology and did a MSc in Neuroscience, both in Barcelona, my home city.
My interest is in early development and how the environment interacts with the body to build brain architecture and influence children’s growth and development. I like the idea of studying the role that early experiences (like parent-infant relationships or environmental, socio-cultural and individual differences) play in early development and examine the link between early life risk factors and infant development.
All this led me to join the team in March 2018. Here I oversee the day to day running of the project, run the assessments and provide general support for the project.
