Coming from a background in philosophy and cognitive science, Andrea’s PhD at the University of Cambridge aims to characterise how the capacity for cognition and consciousness arises from the complex interactions between brain systems. To this end, Andrea’s work combines tools from information theory, network science and whole-brain computational modelling to study information-sharing in the brain across pharmacological and pathological states of consciousness, with the ultimate goal of promoting recovery of consciousness in brain-injured patients.
