Dr Caroline Di Bernardi Luft
Senior Lecturer in Psychology


I joined Brunel University London in November 2022 as a Senior Lecturer in Psychology in the Division of Psychology within the College of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences. Prior to joining, I was a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Queen Mary University of London (2015-2022). I am a cognitive neuroscientist focused on understanding the neural basis of creativity and learning, in individuals and in groups. My methodological approach combines neuroimaging (e.g. EEG) and transcranial direct and alternating current brain stimulation (tDCS and tACS) with advanced mathematical and signal processing techniques.
