Francesca Biondo is working at postdoctoral level in Prof Gunter Schumann's team. Her broad research interests are using large-scale cohorts and rich cognitive and neural characterizations to predict both typical and atypical behaviour and, advance mechanistic accounts of cognition and brain functioning.
Francesca is also the Coordinator for the STRATIFY study.
Francesca holds an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychology which was jointly run by Birkbeck College and UCL, University of London. She then spent 5 years at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge under the supervision of Prof John Duncan and Dr Daniel Mitchell. During this time she worked on a neuropsychology project on frontal lobe functioning, followed by her PhD training via the University of Cambridge which involved experimental work on the effects of task complexity on goal-directed behaviour.
