Dr. Selen Atasoy

Dr. Atasoy obtained her Ph.D. in medical imaging jointly at the Technical Universtiy of Munich and Imperial College London. She then held a postdoctoral research position at the School of Psychology, University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, where she started her work in experimental and computational neuroscience exploring neural correlates of consciousness.

Currently she is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Brain and Cognition, Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona.

She has been awarded TUM Graduate School of Information Science in Health Ph.D. FellowshipBMEP Biomedical Sciences Exchange Scholarship and currently holds Beatriu de Pinós Postdoctoral Fellowship.

Her current research focuses on exploring brain dynamics in consciousness, sleep and psychedelic states as well as in psychiatric disorders by analysing fMRI and MEG data within the mathematical framework of harmonic waves– a phenomenon ubiquitous in nature.

World Awareness for Children in Trauma (WACIT)

This global initiative has the objective of developing an evidence-based psychosocial model for children who experience complex trauma, particularly in low-income countries and in the absence of specialist resources. The programme incorporates research, inter professional training and network-building. Target groups are street children, orphaned, victims of war, refugee, and living in slums. For more information on recent events and activities, visit the blog and project website.
