Emily Rosenich holds a Bachelor of Psychology with honours and is a current neuroscience PhD Candidate in the Division of Health Sciences at the University of South Australia. Her PhD research focuses on understanding the predictors of successful cognitive, motor, and psychological recovery after stroke, and how engagement in complex mental and lifestyle activities across the lifespan can impart a ‘cognitive reserve’, making the brain more resilient to injury. Throughout her PhD studies, Emily has worked as a research intern with the neuro-imaging group at the prestigious Institute for Stroke and Dementia at the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich, Germany. In addition to her scientific work, Emily is a passionate science communicator and advocate for young people and women in science, and is frequently involved in community outreach activities aimed at increasing the visibility of women in science and showcasing STEM-based career opportunities.
