Ms Serena Dimitri

Position: PhD in Artificial Intelligence


I started my journey with a BSc in Psychology at the University of Pavia where I learned to appreciate individual differences. Following, I undertook a joint Master degree course at the University of Pavia and University School of Advanced Studies where I specialized In Neuroscience with the growing will of understanding more about the brain. During my BSc and MSc, I took part in exchange programs at the University Complutense of Madrid, Trinity College of Dublin and the University of Plymouth where I dealt with different ways of doing research. I worked as a researcher on a 3-years-project, which culminated in my Master dissertation: “Neuroscience, Psychology and Computer Science: An Innovative Software on Aggressive Behaviour”. My research interests follow my academic path and my personality, I am mainly captivated by the exploration of how the brain and the individuals work in reaction to technology and how to shape technology to interact effectively with individuals. I am now a PhD student at the University of Glasgow, where I found the perfect harmony between my psychology background, my neuroscience studies and the world of AI and computer science. These three are for me: my knowledge, my specialization and my greatest interest.
