Biography

Mica is an addiction neuroscience researcher with a background in engineering and R&D technology funding and commercialisation. Her current research project at the University of Huddersfield aims to develop a drug testing platform based on machine learning single trial EEG analysis and ERP techniques, with the initial application of treatments for alcohol dependency. Her prior research utilised the same technique to differentiate young adults at-risk for alcohol dependency from those with normal drinking behaviours. She also has experience working with fMRI data, conducting an exploration of craving in opioid dependency using psychophysiological interaction (PPI) connectivity analysis.
