We come from different backgrounds and bring different skillsets, but we are interested in solving similar problems.

Principal Investigator

Dr. Andreea Diaconescu

Dr Andreea Diaconescu is an Independent Scientist at the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics at CAMH and Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto.


Andreea worked as a Junior Group Leader supported by the Swiss National Foundation (Ambizione grant) at the University in Basel in the Department of Psychiatry. There, she led a project on early detection of psychosis using neurocomputational models of persecutory ideation fit to behaviour and neuroimaging (EEG and fMRI) data. After completing her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience with Prof. Randy McIntosh at the Rotman Research Institute (University of Toronto), Andreea held a postdoctoral position at the Translational Neuromodeling Unit (University of Zurich and ETH Zurich). Under the supervision of Prof. Klaas Enno Stephan, she developed and validated computational models of social learning and decision-making.


At the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, Andreea focuses on neurocomputational models of suicidal ideation in psychoaffective disorders.
