Nina M. Hanning, Ph.D. is a Postdoctoral Researcher at New York University (NYU). She received her Ph.D. in Psychology and Systemic Neurosciences, graduating summa cum laude from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany, in 2018. Nina’s research focuses on how the human brain makes sense of the massive amount of visual information that we perceive every time we open our eyes or move our gaze. To tackle this question, she uses techniques like eye-tracking and transcranial brain stimulation, and collaborates with researchers across the United States and Europe. She has received multiple awards for her scientific work and has authored publications in prestigious academic journals such as ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA’ and ‘Trends in Neurosciences’. Nina has been a tutor and instructor since the beginning of her scientific career in Salzburg, Austria. Over the past 10 years she has taught numerous courses on cognitive neuroscience, psychology, communication, and scientific practice, and is excited to share her knowledge and passion with the next generation of scientists.
