For her PhD research, Nazia uses a variety of cognitive neuroscience techniques, from behavioural experiments to ultra-high-resolution 7T MRI and MR Spectroscopy, to investigate visual perception, systemising (i.e, pattern learning), and brain function in autistic adults. Nazia’s PhD is co-supervised by Prof. John Suckling and Prof. Simon Baron-Cohen at the ARC and Dr. Rebecca Lawson at the Prediction and Learning Lab. Her PhD is funded by the April Trust Studentship awarded by Newnham College and the GC Grindley Fund awarded by the Department of Psychology.
Prior to her doctoral studies in Cambridge, Nazia completed a Master’s in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Free University of Berlin, Germany, and a Bachelor’s in Biology at the Women’s Christian College, University of Madras, India. For her Master’s research, Nazia used fMRI to study emotion processing in adolescent depression.
