I graduated in Psychology and took my M.Sc. in Research in Behavior and Cognition at the University of Barcelona. I joined the Brainlab as an undergraduate student and completed both my bachelor’s and master’s theses under the supervision of Dr. Iria San Miguel. During these years, my research interest focused on motor-auditory interactions. Specifically, I explored the altered perceptual sensitivity and the possible modulations in memory encoding for sounds generated by our own actions compared to other types of auditory stimuli.
Currently, I am a PhD student in the ERC Artoundscapes project, supervised by Prof. Carles Escera and Prof. Margarita Díaz-Andreu. In this project, I will examine whether there are brain activity patterns, specifically patterns similar to those reported in altered state of consciousness, in response to sounds with the same psychoacoustics as in selected rock art landscapes. More generally, my current research interests focus on how brain activity might be modulated by certain acoustic properties of sound or music.
