Welcome to Music on the Mind

I’m a PhD Student investigating what is going on in the brain when we hear music in our minds. To do that I use a technique called Magnetoencephalography (MEG) to measure the brain’s activity whilst people are completing a task that requires them to imagine music.

If you want to know more about my research you can check out:

I’ve also been trying my hand at some writing for others recently, so maybe some of these might interest you:

If you want to know more about me and my science journey, then check out this interview with Womanthology UK. But if you’ve had enough of reading and would rather listen to something instead, check out this Macquarie University’s Pioneering Minds Podcast.

This blog is about what inspires me as I learn and reflect on my learning.

I hope it inspires you too. But I want to continually get better at this science communication thing (and writing in general really), so if anything doesn’t make sense or you don’t think its right, I’d love your feedback so that I can improve!
