Dr Kanad Mandke

Dr Kanad Mandkeis a Magdalene College College Research Associate.

Before joining the Centre for Neuroscience in Education (January, 2019), Department of Psychology, I pursued a MSc in Brain Imaging (2014) and a PhD in Psychology at the University of Nottingham (2014-2018), where I investigated auditory evoked potentials and training related plasticity using magnetoencephalography (MEG). During my PhD, I also worked on multilayer brain networks. My master’s degree was supported by the Developing Solutions scholarship and the doctoral training was supported by the prestigious Vice Chancellor's Scholarship for Research Excellence awarded by the University of Nottingham.

Research Interests

My research is at the intersection of human electrophysiology and analysis of complex brain networks. I use different brain imaging methods such as magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroencephalography (EEG), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to understand childhood language development. In particular, I am interested in understanding how children with dyslexia process speech and language. Using various basic experiments my colleagues at Centre for Neuroscience in Education and I are interested in developing behavioural remediation strategies for children with dyslexia with the ultimate aim of improving their educational outcomes.
