Dr. Vassilis Pelekanos


After completing my Master’s in Cognitive Science at the University of Athens, I started a PhD in visual neuroscience supervised by Dr Andrew Welchman as member of a European training network (Marie Curie fellow - ‘CODDE’ initial training network). In the third year of my PhD, I followed the lab’s relocation from the University of Birmingham to the University of Cambridge.

My aim is to incorporate the skills I gained during my PhD training in novel paradigms and understand how brain activity gives rise to the conscious sensation of the rapidly changing environment.  Outside work, I enjoy playing the drums with my band around Cambridge.
