Marcia is partway through her doctorate EngD programme, based primarily at Bournemouth University. She is currently conducting a literature review, with plans to begin experiments towards the beginning of the 2020-21 academic year. Stuart Black of BrainTrainUK is the Industrial Supervisor of Marcia’s research, which is focused on multiple participant EEG (also known as ‘hyper-scanning’) neurofeedback.
Marcia participated and won first place in a group hackathon at the BCI Society Meeting in California 2018 where she and her group created a ‘mind-controlled’ zombie avatar. She has also published and presented a research paper on resampling techniques in machine learning at the UK Computational Intelligence conference in Nottingham 2018. Previously, Marcia completed an MSc in Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics.
