Dr Diana Omigie

I’m a cognitive neuroscientist and member of the Music, Mind and Brain research group at Goldsmiths where I co-direct the MSc programme in Music, Mind and Brain with Daniel Müllensiefen. My research interests revolve around the behavioural, physiological and neural correlates of music-induced emotions and the aesthetic experience.

Supervision

I’m available to supervise students at BSc, MSc and PhD level on projects related to music psychology and empirical aesthetics. Feel free to contact me to discuss possible opportunities.
