Meet The Team
DIRECTOR & LEAD SCIENTIST
Claire is Project Director and Lead Scientist for the Neureka App and The Gillan Lab. Claire and her team take a unique approach to studying brain health by combining mobile technology with citizen science to help create a clearer picture of what keeps the brain healthy. A key goal for this research is to develop objective tests that can be used to understand, predict and prevent disorders of the mind.
Anna is a Research Manager at The Neureka Project. She is responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the project, as well as supporting ongoing Neureka research. Anna has a strong interest in science communication and assists in the expansion and communication of results from The Neureka Project to the public, researchers, and clinicians across the world.
Celine is completing her PhD, under the supervision of Dr Claire Gillan. Using Neureka, Celine will be working with longitudinal clinical and cognitive data, collected regularly within subjects. She will be using network analysis and other methods with the goal of understanding how an individual’s compulsivity develops and changes over time.
Kelly is conducting her PhD under the supervision of Dr Claire Gillan as part of the ERC funded ‘Making and Breaking a Habit’ project. Her research will use smartphone-based assessments, electrophysiology, and causal manipulation in an attempt to uncover how habits form, how they interact with goal-directed capacity, and how they relate to mental health symptomatology.
Anna Marie Rosická
Anna is using Neureka to complete her PhD research which focuses on the cognitive neuroscience of ageing and dementia. Her research interests include successful ageing, neurodegenerative diseases, social perception and prejudice, as well as the use of mobile technology in promoting health and behavioural changes.
Vanessa is a postdoctoral researcher on The Neureka Project. Her goal is to build more appropriate models of individual behavior in key dimensions of cognition which can (a) help to elucidate neurobiological mechanisms driving psychiatric disorders and (b) help to develop predictive measures to identify individuals at risk and tailor treatment.
With a background in App development and game design, Eoghan is the Software Developer on The Neureka Project and is responsible for the application build, user interface and user experience.
UX DESIGNER & QA TESTER
Ana is a Neuroscience graduate at Trinity College Dublin. She has contributed to testing the early stages of the Neureka App and is currently responsible for app design and user testing.
