Maryam Ziaei

Maryam Ziaei completed her PhD in neuroscience through the School of Psychology at the University of Queensland (UQ). Her PhD research sought to understand the networks involved in processing emotionally and socially salient cues in healthy ageing. She is currently a UQ Development Fellow at the Centre for Advanced Imaging, where she leads a number of neuroimaging projects around the impact of belief on logical reasoning, the role of mindfulness training on well-being, and the impact of exercise on cognitive functions in healthy ageing.

While passionate about fundamental research, Maryam is also actively engaged with the broader community to translate her research findings into tools for promoting public health.
