Andreea Diaconescu, PhD
Scientist (Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics and CAMH), Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto
Cognitive Network Modelling and Its Clinical Utility in Psychosis
As an Independent Scientist at the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics and CAMH, Dr. Andreea Oliviana Diaconescu leads the Cognitive Network Modeling team, leveraging her extensive expertise in computational psychiatry. She also holds an Assistant Professorship in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, where she is a member of the Department of Psychology, the Institute for Medical Science, and the Max Planck-University of Toronto Centre for Neural Science and Technology. Dr. Diaconescu’s research is centered on the clinical validation of computational models of aberrant belief formation for predicting psychosis risk and treatment response in help-seeking youth populations using behavioural tasks, electrophysiology and neuroimaging methods. Her significant contributions to the field have been acknowledged with numerous awards, including the W. B. Templeton Award and the Novartis Foundation Medical-Biological Research Award. Her research is currently supported by the CIHR, NSERC, the Discovery Fund, and the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
The event will be held in the Bowerman Room and will be rebroadcast by Zoom.
