Georgina Donati

Position: Graduate student
Birkbeck, University of London, Malet Street


I am a PhD student under the supervision of Dr Emma Meaburn and Dr Iroise Dumontheil. My PhD project explores the biological factors influencing the interaction between our cognitive and emotion systems. The project looks at how executive functions relate to emotion regulation, how heritable this relationship is and what genes may be influencing it. We will also look to see how these measures relate to or influence educational achievement. I am supported by a Birkbeck Anniversary PhD Studentship (2015-2018)
