Research Assistant


I work as a research assistant in the Centre of Neuroscience in Education baby lab at the University of Cambridge working on the BabyRhythm project run by Prof Usha Goswami and her team. The BabyRhythm project is a longitudinal study using a range of techniques including EEG and motion capture investigating the neural and auditory bases of language development in infants, focusing on neuronal oscillatory entrainment and sensitivity to acoustic rhythm.

I have a MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Amsterdam, which was funded by a study abroad studentship granted by the Leverhulme trust, and a BSc in Psychology from Royal Holloway University of London.

I have worked in a variety of labs including Prof Carolyn McGettigan’s Vocal Communication Lab at Royal Holloway University and Dr Heleen Slagter’s Cognition and Plasticity Lab at the University of Amsterdam. These placements have given me the opportunity to gain experience with a range of techniques including EEG, tDCS and MRI.
