About me

A photo of Niia.

Hej! I am a behavioural neuroscientist, with an interest in perception –  the  way in which we experience ourselves and our surroundings. I am currently a postdoc at the Embodied Computation Group at Aarhus University, working with Micah Allen

As an undergraduate I studied neuroscience at McGill University, where I worked with Kathy Mullen using visual psychophysics to understand the processing of colour in the brain. In 2018, I completed a PhD at City University of London and the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research, where I worked with the supervision of Michael Morgan and Josh Solomon to study visual motion and the interaction between attention and perception. I then moved to Scotland, where I was a postdoc first with Lars Muckli and the University of Glasgow, and later at the University of Strathclyde, where I worked with William McGeown to investigate the neurobiology of suggestibility and hypnosis.

I am actively involved in science outreach, including running STEM activities in schools and organising development and public engagement events. I also make various electronic projects including electronic paper crafts, e-Textiles (garments), and toys.
