Event Description

Full Description:
Dr Maryam Ziaei completed her PhD in neuroscience through the School of Psychology at the University of Queensland in 2016. Her PhD research, which was awarded a Dean's Award for Outstanding HDR Theses, sought to understand the networks involved in processing emotionally and socially salient cues in healthy aging. 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 aging. Most recently, Dr Ziaei was a panelist at the World Science Festival 2018 among other internationally recognised researchers in a discussion regarding the link between neuroscience and religious belief.

We have invited Maryam to share with you her experience of the PhD journey and wisdom on what makes a successful HDR candidate. She will also delve into her research on the effectiveness of mindfulness training and how to maintain a holistic lifestyle throughout your candidature.
