Carolina Makowski

Introduction

I am a PhD Candidate in the Integrated Program of Neuroscience at McGill University, Montreal, Canada. My doctoral work focuses on the structural trajectories underlying a first episode of psychosis, and how progressive brain changes are linked to clinical and cognitive measures. I also have been involved with various projects characterizing normal/abnormal neurodevelopment, and the neuroinformatics platforms required to curate the large amounts of data streaming in to answer these questions.
