Dr Diandra Brkic

Interests

Diandra is currently a postdoctoral researcher within the Genomic Disorders and Cognitive Development Group (GDCD) led by Dr Kate Baker. She is also a bye-fellow of Fitzwilliam College.

Her research focuses on studying cognitive, behavioural, and neural mechanisms in single gene disorders causing intellectual disability. Specifically, her major interest is in combining cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging (MEG and MRI) techniques, in order to define better commonalities and differences across functional genetic networks, involved in the etiopathogenesis of developmental disorders.
