We are delighted to announce that GNCs Martyna Galazka has recently been appointed Senior Lecturer at the Department of Applied Information Technology, Division of Cognition and Communication, at the University of Gothenburg. Over recent years, Martyna’s work at the GNC has involved a number of projects examining perception to faces and other social information in children at risk of developmental dyslexia and autism.
In her new role, her primary responsibility will be to teach and develop course curriculum for students pursuing undergraduate and graduate programs in various areas of cognition and human-centered AI.
When asked how Martyna feels about this new challenge, she replied
“I am excited to embark on this new journey in my career. I am thrilled to share my knowledge of clinical and developmental psychology with the students and inspire them to become future professionals. I look forward to the opportunities and challenges this role will bring, and I am eager to make a positive impact on the department and the students”
In addition to teaching, Martyna will also continue her involvement in research with colleagues from Gillberg Neuropsychiatry Centre and other scholarly activities, collaborating with other faculty members and industry professionals to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field.
The GNC wishes Martyna the very best of luck in her new role.
