Nazia is a cognitive neuroscientist interested in how humans perceive, learn, and make decisions in different environmental contexts, and how this may relate to mental health in different populations.

She is based at Professor Rebecca Lawson’s Prediction and Learning Lab at the Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge. In 2022, Nazia was awarded a Parke-Davis Fellowship to visit the Psychiatry, Embodiment, and Cognition Lab headed by Professor Frederike Petzschner at the Carney Institute of Brain Sciences, Brown University, USA.

Prior this, she completed a PhD (2022) on the neuroscience of visual perception in autism at the Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, with Professor John Suckling and Professor Simon Baron-Cohen. Her PhD was funded by the April Trust Studentship at Newnham College.

Nazia supervises on the following PBS papers: PBS2 Psychological Enquiry and Methods, NST1b/PBS4 Experimental Psychology/Cognitive Neurosciences, and PBS6 Advanced Topics in Developmental Psychology (Autism).
