Sophie Esterer completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Vienna. She then gained her Masters degree in Cognitive Neuroscience working with Prof. Ole Jensen at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour.
She is currently doing a PhD at the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC), supervised by Dr David McGonigle. Her research is co-funded by the EPSRC with a focus on visual psychophysics and combining transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) with neuroimaging techniques, in particular MEG and fNIRS, to study the physiological basis of neuromodulation in sensory processing. Sophie is also investigating the use of finite-element-models of transcranial electrical stimulation for designing and evaluating brain stimulation experiments.
Sophie will be speaking at the upcoming BrainBox Initiative Conference at the Wellcome Collection on the 27-28 September 2018.
