Eirini Papageorgopoulou is a PhD student at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive development, Birkbeck, University of London, supervised by Prof. Emily Jones. Eirini is interested in brain development and the role of the early social environment in infant developmental trajectories. Eirini’s research project combines laboratory and parent-child free-play interaction measures to examine the links between early brain function and parent-infant interaction in infants who are at an elevated likelihood for autism.
Personal statement: I am excited to be part of the R4N network because it takes a multidisciplinary approach to building reliable and personalised neurotechnology for children with neurodevelopmental conditions. I believe that having an inclusive community where the voices of people with lived experience can be heard is the way forward to advance neurotechnology to provide individualised support to children and their families.
