Roeland Hancock holds a BS in Mathematics and a PhD in Psychology from the University of Arizona and completed postdoctoral training at the University of California, San Francisco. Before joining BrainWorks, he was the Associate Director of the Brain Imaging Research Center at the University of Connecticut, where he contributed to a wide range of research using MRI, EEG, and TMS. His scientific interests lie broadly in the neurobiology of language processing, drawing on spectroscopy, noninvasive stimulation, and computational models to understand how neural dynamics constrain sentence processing. Outside of academia, he has spent time engineering scientific software solutions as a restaurateur and exploring many of Connecticut’s cycling trails.
