Prior to joining Oxford University Innovation, Gaelle was a postdoctoral researcher in neuroscience at the University of Oxford. She used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study how the human brain reorganises in people who have lost their sight, focussing on how the remaining senses (sound and touch) take over the regions of the brain normally dedicated to vision. She also completed a PhD and MSc in neuroscience at the University of Oxford, covering a range of fields from brain imaging to electrophysiology. Alongside academic research, Gaelle has worked as a science writer (MRC’s Biomedical Picture of the Day, Bang! Science Magazine, Know It Wall) focusing on concisely breaking down scientific research for non-specialist audiences. Gaelle is a dual national (French-British) and has lived and studied in Europe and the Middle East.
