About Diana

From the age of 17, Dr Diana Omigie knew she wanted to understand the root of who we are by studying the brain. She has always been particularly fascinated by why, as a species, we produce and have an affinity for, the arts.

Diana studied her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at University College London, during which time she carried out research stays in UCSD and Columbia University. She went on to take her MSc and PhD at Goldsmiths University of London and these allowed her to specialise in music cognition and neuroscience. After carrying out fellowships in Paris (Brain and Spine institute), New York (New York University), and Frankfurt (MPI for Empirical Aesthetics), she returned to Goldsmiths where she now holds a lectureship in Psychology and runs the MSc in Music Mind and Brain.

Diana's interest in this subject comes from her own personal love of music and the arts and a fascination with how they affect us. When not playing the piano, she enjoys reading everything she can about arts and culture and taking long walks with her husband and friends.
