Meet The Team
At neureka we believe team work is important!
Below you can find out more about our core team players.
Neureka is a product of the Gillan Lab at Trinity College Dublin.
Claire is Project Director and Chief Scientist for the Neureka App and The Gillan Lab. Claire and her team take a unique approach to studying neurodegenerative diseases by using technology to collect large data sets, allowing the team to study predictors of disease like never before
Sean is completing is PHD covering a number of topics uses network analysis . In the Neureka project Sean will use passively collected smartphone data to predict when substantial changes in depressive symptoms occur
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.
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.
Anna is the research manager and an assistant researcher with Neureka. She provides both research and administrative support to the Neureka project. Her background is in clinical neuroscience and psychology.
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.
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.
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.
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.
