An Introduction to Dr. Adriana Soni:
Adriana Soni is a part-time psychology lecturer. She obtained her PhD in Education at the University of Bristol in 2017. Her doctoral thesis focused on exploring Latin American teachers’ perceptions about the mind-brain relationship, brain function and neuroeducation. Her current research interests were inspired by her thesis findings and she is now focusing on developing neuroscience informed strategies that can be helpful in promoting social equality and better education for children experiencing low-socioeconomic status. In relation to this, music has become a major area of interest in her research as she wants to explore how it may impact children's cognitive skills and brain function.
