Dr Monica Truelove-Hill

Lecturer in Psychological Research Methods


I received my PhD in Applied Cognitive & Brain Sciences from Drexel University in 2018, after which I worked with Dr Christos Davatzikos as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Imaging Lab (AIBIL) at the University of Pennsylvania. I joined the Psychology department at the University of Edinburgh in 2021 then moved to the Clinical Psychology Department in January 2024.

Research summary

I am interested in combining machine learning techniques with structural and functional neuroimaging data to identify atypical brain development and aging, particularly as it relates to Alzheimer's Disease. I am especially interested in using these methods to develop individualized measures that can be used to assess future trajectory.

Past research interests

During my doctoral studies, I worked with Dr John Kounios to investigate the neural basis of creativity and insight using EEG.
