Greig de Zubicaray

I completed my Masters in Clinical Neuropsychology at UQ in 1995, followed by a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2001. My Ph.D. fMRI experiments were conducted with the Neuroimaging Research Group at the Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK. Much of my research addresses how fMRI may be used to inform and constrain models of cognitive processes, especially language and memory. Other areas of interest include disorders of memory and language, neuroimaging methods, imaging genetics, and neuropsychological assessment.




Katie McMahon
Centre for Advanced Imaging

I completed my Ph.D. in MR Physics in 1999. I'm the Deputy Director and principal pulse sequence programmer on the Siemens MRI systems at the Herston Imaging Research Centre. I have broad research interests in fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and sodium imaging.




Postdoctoral fellows


Sonia Brownsett
Sonia joins us from Alex Leff's group at University College London (UCL), where she completed her PhD on a computer-based therapy targeting auditory discrimination deficits and used fMRI to investigate how ‘non-language’ areas of the brain are important in the rehabilitation of aphasia. Her work will range across several projects, and will include neuroimaging, intracranial EEG, brain stimulation, and psycholinguistic methods.






Hanna Gauvin
Hanna joined us from Robert Hartsuiker's group in Ghent, where she completed her PhD on speech monitoring using fMRI and behavioural methods. Her work will range across several projects, and will include neuroimaging, intracranial EEG, brain stimulation, and psycholinguistic methods.








Research Officer


Kori Ramajoo
I completed my Bachelor in Psychology with Hons in 2009 at UQ. Held an associate research assistant position with the Queensland Institute of Medical Research and the Centre for Advanced Imaging (2009-2012) where I was responsible for administration, data collection and analysis on an epidemiology neuroimaging genetics project. I have broad research interests in psycholinguistics, neuroimaging and genetics. My interests in psycholinguistics lead me to complete a Masters of Speech Pathology in 2013 at UQ. Currently I am employed on a prospective study of language function following surgical resection of left hemisphere primary brain tumours.







Postgraduate students
