Volunteers

We are lucky enough to have a huge bank of volunteers to help us out. Most of whom are working or studying neuroscience. If you would like to help us out by volunteering at one of our events please contact us at: londonbrainproject@gmail.com

Georgina Donati

PhD student at Birkbeck’s Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development.  

I’m interested in emotion and cognitive traits, particularly how these develop in adolescence and how differences in this development can impact on our well-being, mental health and success.  I also work with genetics as I like to get into the nitty gritty biology of how things are built!  The London Brain Project is an exciting organisation to be involved with - for me, public engagement is a key part of science and artist collaborations is a great way to go about it.

 

Laura Kischkel

PhD Candidate - Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychiatry Section

I’m doing a PhD in developmental neurosciences, studying memory development in babies in the UK and The Gambia, West Africa. I’m passionate about researching how babies learn to perfom all the wonderfully complex processes that humans are capable of and how that relates to their brain development. In the past I have helped out the London Brain Project on a workshop on that same topic, and having been inspired by them, I am currently planning a workshop for our Gambian families in which we will explore how their babies’ brains develop over the first year of life.
