Research Fellow at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA
Aina is working on the development of methods for diffusion and functional MRI analysis. During her PhD at Inria (France), she developed statistical models for the analysis of BOLD and ASL task fMRI.
FWO Postdoctoral Researcher at KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium
Gabriella obtained her PhD at KULeuven in the Laboratory for Cognitive Neurology. Currently, she is a FWO Postdoctoral Researcher at KU Leuven. Her research program focuses on leveraging the huge advances in Natural Language Processing in computational sciences to address the neurobiology of sentence processing.
Doris Pischedda (she/her)
Social Media / Research
Postdoc at Charitè-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany
Doris investigates neural representations using fMRI and multivariate decoding. During her PhD, she characterized rule representations in the human brain. As a postdoc, she focused on social cognition in collaborative tasks (University of Milano-Bicocca), strategic games (University of Minnesota), social learning (University of Trento) and human-robot interactions.
Ana Luísa Pinho
Website Development / Research
BrainsCAN Postdoctoral Fellow at The Brain and Mind Institute, Western University, London ON, Canada
Ana Luísa graduated in Eng. Physics at IST (Lisbon, PT). She studied functional imaging and cognitive neuroscience during her PhD at Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm, SE) and, after, worked on the application of data-science techniques to fMRI data as a Postdoc at Inria (Paris, FR). She is now working on the development of atlassing methods to map music cognition in the human cerebellum.
Marie-Curie Fellow at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Eliana is interested in motivation and decision-making. During her PhD and postdoc she has used neuroimaging, neurostimulation and computational modelling to study the contribution of the prefrontal cortex to these processes. Currently, she works on translating neurocomputational models of motivation to neuropsychiatric populations.
Manager for Center Administration at Center for Computational Neuroscience, Flatiron Institute, NYC, USA
Matthew is a higher education and nonprofit administration professional with 15+ years experience in academic and faculty affairs, budget and finance, and administration, and currently manages a private neuroscience research center. He holds an MDiv from Harvard Divinity School focused on practical theology and harm reduction.
Paola Mengotti (she/her)
Postdoctoral Researcher at Forschungszentrum Jülich, INM3 - Cognitive Neuroscience, Jülich, Germany
Paola’s research focuses on understanding the impact of expectations on spatial attention by combining computational modelling of behavior with fMRI and TMS. During her PhD in cognitive neuroscience at SISSA (Trieste, Italy), she investigated the neural correlates of gesture imitation.
Anibal Sólon (he/him)
PhD Student at University of Texas at Austin, TX, USA
Anibal is a Computer Science Ph.D. student, developing methods for fMRI preprocessing and analysis. His research investigates reproducible biomarkers of mental disorders in brain function imaging. Passionate about programming and open source, Anibal’s experience in diverse projects sums to 15 years.
Morgan Foret (she/her)
Social Media / Research
PhD Candidate, McGill University, Montreal, Canada
Morgan graduated with a BSc Honours in Cell Biology from the University of Calgary in 2014. Since then, as part of her PhD work, she has been investigating the role of oxidative stress in Alzheimer’s disease by utilizing a transgenic animal model of AD and real-time fluorescence imaging strategies.
Technical Solutions Team Manager, London, UK
Gregory is a highly qualified computer science engineer with 10+ years experience in customer support and process improvement.
Finance / Research
Research Fellow at INM-7 at the Forschungszentrum Jülich, Jülich, Germany
Sarah has a background in clinical psychology, cognitive neuroscience and functional neuroanatomy. Her research aims to develop methods for studying and modelling the relationships between brain and behavior in large scale neuroimaging and behavioral data.
Finance / Research
CEO of convelop, Graz, Austria
Karin Grasenick (Dr.tech.) has a background in biomedical engineering and social sciences. She is the founder and the CEO of convelop – cooperative knowledge design gmbh, specialised in the process design and evaluation of RTI related strategies and measures. Her specific focus is thereby diversity, inclusion and interdisciplinary collaboration, topics she lectures at several universities.
Researcher in Clinical & Cognitive Neuroscience
After a PhD in France and postdocs in California and Quebec, Valentina is starting as an Assistant Professor at the University of Geneva, focusing on the neurobiology of language and semantic knowledge.
Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University, New Haven, CT
Stephanie Noble is a postdoc at Yale working on computational and statistical tools for more reproducible fMRI research. Before that, she majored in Chemical Engineering and co-founded neuroscience startup goBlue. She’s also passionate about supporting her underrepresented colleagues and fellow Latinas in STEM! Please reach out about navigating careers in academia or industry and to discuss opportunities for underrepresented scientists.
