Rianne Haartsen is a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck, University of London working with Emily Jones. Rianne is interested in individual variability in developmental trajectories in neurodiverse populations. Her work focuses on brain responses and networks from infancy to adulthood measured with the use of electrophysiology (EEG). She further develops robust, scalable, and personalised measures of brain activity across development for implementation in clinical settings and global health settings.
I was excited to join the network because of their broad focus on neurodevelopment rather than autism only. I was also motivated to engage in multidisciplinary collaborations as I believe these will lead to new innovative neurotechnology with a wider use so we can move towards more inclusive research and practise.
