I am enrolled in the combined MPsych (Clinical Neuropsychology)/PhD program. My research combines two of my favourite things – brains and music! I am investigating absolute pitch, which is the rare ability to identify and label isolated musical notes, and what it can tell us about the variation and heritability of human behavioural traits. My other passion is cooking - unfortunately though, I couldn’t work out a way to incorporate bread baking techniques into my research question.
