Ignacio Perez-Pozuelo


I completed my undergraduate degree at Brown University, where I had the opportunity to combine my studies in biomedical engineering with advanced courses in neuroscience and neurotechnology. I completed research internships at Columbia University Medical Center, Butler Hospital, Brown University and Harvard Medical School, studying a variety of neuropsychiatric conditions (OCD, depression, paralysis, pain and others) with a wide array of techniques (fMRI, TMS, tDCS, DBS, MEAs, etc). My senior thesis examined the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation through a wireless-microelectrode array interface. After graduating from Brown, I came back to Europe and completed the MSc in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford. At Oxford, my first dissertation studied the neurophysiological and cognitive effects of sleep deprivation, and the second one used statistical learning models to predict the response of transcranial alternating current stimulation on tremor. I joined the Adaptive Brain Lab in 2015 as a Marie Curie research fellow, where I study statistical and predictive learning through computational models, behavioural tasks and multimodal neuroimaging techniques.

Outside of lab I enjoy rowing and powerlifting, watching movies (almost done with IMBD's top 250) and sporting events (NBA, football) as well as discovering new places to eat in Cambridge and London.

Research Interests

My current research focuses on understanding how we learn from the world that surround us and predict future events through the combination of behavioural and computational models as well as multimodal neuroimaging techniques. I am particularly interested in extrapolating our findings in the lab to assist people who suffer from learning disabilities through adaptive and individualized learning and teaching paradigms.
