Susana is a Computational Neuroscience PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, funded by

Research interests

Susana's work revolves around creating computer models of molecules in our brains that are important for memory formation. Her work at the Turing will be around discussing ethical standards and reproducibility of computer models in Neurobiology.

To do so, we can ask questions such as "What’s the bias in the data used in my computational models of biological systems, how reproducible and open is my research and can we develop cross-community collaborative systems which analyse eco-social impact of datasets we use?”

By working with the Open Research Community Building group, Susana plans to host workshops and 
collaboration cafés where we can work through these topics with an intersectional and collaborative approach, offering different solutions to problems that arise.
