    Sebastian, Nuria

    I received my PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Barcelona in 1986. After Post-doctoral training at the Max Plank Institute and the LSCP-CNRS in Paris, I was appointed as Associate Professor at the Faculty of Psychology (University of Barcelona) in 1988, where I was promoted to Full Professor in 2002. In 2009 I moved to the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I have been Visiting Scholar at several research Centers, including the IRCS at Univ. of Pennsylvania, the ICN at the Univ. College (London) and the University of Chicago (in 2010). I have received international recognition as shown by a James S. McDonnell Foundation Award (“Bridging Mind, Brain and Behavior” Program) in 2001 and giving the Nijmegen Lectures in 2005. In 2009 and in 2013 I have been awarded the ICREA Academia Prize established by the Catalan Government. I was member of the advisory group of the “Brain and Learning” initiative of the OECD from 2002 to 2006. In 2016 I was elected as a Fellow of the British Academy. I was vice-president of the Scientific Council of the European Research Council from 2014-2016.
