Dr Lucia Garrido
Lecturer in Psychology


My research area is cognitive neuroscience, with focus on visual processing and social perception.

I studied Psychology at the University of Porto in Portugal. In 2004, I moved to London to do an MSc in Cognitive Neuropsychology at University College London (UCL), and then a PhD at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. From 2010 to 2013, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Vision Sciences Laboratory at Harvard University.

I joined Brunel University London as a Lecturer in Psychology in July 2013.
