Selen Atasoy

Center for Brain and Cognition, Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF)




Selen Atasoy obtained her Ph.D. in medical imaging jointly at the Technical Universtiy of Munich and Imperial College London. She then held a postdoctoral research position at the School of Psychology, University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, where she started her work in experimental and computational neuroscience exploring neural correlates of consciousness. Currently she is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Brain and Cognition, Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona, working with Gustavo Deco (UPF), Joel Pearson (UNSW) and Morten Kringelbach (Unversity of Oxford).  She has been awarded TUM Graduate School of Information Science in Health Ph.D. FellowshipBMEP Biomedical Sciences Exchange Scholarship and currently holds Beatriu de Pinós Postdoctoral Fellowship. 

Her research focuses on exploring the neural correlates of consciousness, spontaneous neural activity in resting state and sleep using fMRI and MEG. She also explores the relation between functional networks of the human brain and the human connectome using computational models and the mathematical framework of harmonic patterns– ubiquitous in various physical and biological phenomena.
