Joseph Rovetti is a third-year undergraduate student working towards a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Biology. He joined the SMART lab at the start of 2017 and was awarded an NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award later that year, allowing him to work in the lab full time throughout the spring and summer. This gave him a chance to contribute to a number of projects, including the use of functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to measure auditory working memory load, which he is currently continuing to explore. While interested in a wide range of topics in cognition and neuroscience, some of Joseph’s favourites include language processing, synesthesia, and the action observation network. Outside of the lab, he is currently learning the piano and hopes to gain experience with other instruments as well.
