Ido Davidesco, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow with David Poeppel at NYU’s Psychology Department. Together with Dr. Dikker, he conducts EEG studies in schools. He is also currently developing two neuroscience education programs: Brain 101, a neuroscience enrichment program for elementary and middle school students (in collaboration with the New York Academy of Sciences) and BrainWaves: An EEG-based neuroscience curriculum for high school students. He also facilitates professional development workshops for teachers with Math for America and teaches neuroscience courses at Columbia Teachers College and Yeshiva University.
Suzanne Dikker, PhD is a research scientist in NYU’s Psychology Department. Her research merges cognitive neuroscience, education, and art in an effort to understand the brain basis of human social interaction. She uses portable EEG in a series of crowd-sourcing neuroscience experiments that investigate the role of brainwave synchronization between two or more people in social interaction and learning. As part of the SEPA research team, Suzanne is in charge of developing brainWAVES, a platform that will allow high school students to design, run, and analyze their own neuroscience experiments.
