Julia Berezutskaya is a postdoc working on the INTRECOM and INTENSE neurotechnology projects. In 2020, she completed her PhD on “Data-driven modelling of speech processes in intracranial data” at the University Medical Center in Utrecht within the Language in Interaction consortium. In 2022-2023, she worked as a postdoc at the Artificial Intelligence department of the Radboud University.
Julia’s background is in Cognitive Neuroscience, Speech Technology, Brain-Computer Interfaces and Artificial Intelligence. Her mission is to translate knowledge of artificial intelligence and cognitive neuroscience to the field of neurotechnology for healthcare by developing personalized care solutions for individuals with severe motor paralysis. Her current work focuses on 1) decoding speech from neural signals for the development of brain-computer interfaces and 2) modeling of speech and movement processes in the human brain. Recently, she obtained her first grant (REANIMATE, NWO Open Science XS, November 2022) to explore the potential of functional electrical stimulation of facial muscles for brain-computer interfaces.
She is a member of the Postdoc and Student Committee of the BCI Society, a Repronim fellow and a member of the UMC Utrecht Young Academy.
