About Me

sel de felipe alejandraI am a senior researcher working at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford. The overarching aim of my research is to understand how sensory and motor signals coming from within and outside the body influence our social behaviours. I am particularly interested in how the human brain forms representations of affective states through bodily interoceptive signals, and how it leverages these representations to guide actions. To perform my research, I employ a variety of techniques including high-density electrophysiological recording techniques (EEG/ERPs), interventional techniques (TMS/tDCS) and behavioural measures as indexes of cognitive processes.

Besides my research, I greatly enjoy teaching and mentoring students. I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) with over 10 year experience in higher education. I have had the opportunity to teach on a number of courses ranging from Research Methods to Biological Psychology, and to supervise final year, MSc, and PhD project students.
