Simona Leserri is a doctoral researcher in the CNIR group at A.I. Virtanen Institute for Molecular Sciences, University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio, Finland. She is fascinated by neuromodulation techniques and she believes that neuroimaging is key to elucidating their effectiveness. In particular, she uses both diffusion and functional MRI to study brain connectivity alterations in psychiatric conditions, such as depression or schizophrenia. In her research, she combines neuroimaging modalities to optimize and personalize TMS treatment in depression. She is also a visiting researcher at the Helsinki University Hospital (HUS).
