Roni Tibon  Lab head

I am an assistant professor at the University of Nottingham (School of Psychology). The main goal of my research is to understand the neurocognitive mechanisms that shape our memories, and how they change throughout the lifespan. To achieve this goal, I use a variety of behavioural methods, neuroimaging methods (including EEG, MEG and fMRI), and analytical methods. Before I joined the University of Nottingham, I worked in Cambridge as a Research Fellow and then as a Senior Research Associate with Prof. Rik Henson at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. Prior to that, I completed a postdoc at Reichman University with Prof. Daniel Levy, and a PhD at Bar Ilan University with Prof. Avi Goldstein and Prof. Eli Vakil, where I investigated how different encoding mechanisms produce qualitative changes to remembering. Aside from my research, I enjoy traveling, sleep (when I can), and engage in crafty stuff. But most of all, I enjoy goofing around with my kids (aka: "The Trolls"). That, and Netflix.

 

Josefina Weinerova  PhD student

I am a researcher interested in the fields of cognitive science, public health, and meta-science. Currently, I am studying the effects of Covid-19 on the brain and cognition as a PhD student at the University of Nottingham. Before that, I have worked for the National Institute of Mental Health in the Czech Republic on a clinical trial of the effects of probiotics on cognition in older adults. I have also collaborated with the Centre for the Modeling of Biological and Social Processes which analyses covid related data and drafts policy recommendations for the Czech government and other stakeholders. I have graduated from the University of Cambridge, reading Psychological and Behavioural Sciences (undergraduate) and Biological Science – Psychology (MPhil). I enjoy hiking, food and coffee.
