Jaïr is a research assistant at the SYNC lab and is involved in our longitudinal Braintime project on adolescent brain development. At this phase in the project (2023), participants are young adults. Therefore, another data collection wave is currently underway to study the relation between neurodevelopmental and behavioral trajectories and well-being later in life.
As a research assistant, Jaïr is involved primarily with data collection including MRI scans, behavioral experiments, and questionnaires. He is also concerned with the planning and screening of participants, as well as other projects within the SYNC lab.
Jaïr has a background is in psychology and neuroscience, and completed a Research Master in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience at Maastricht University in 2021. Currently, he is also enrolled in the Engaging Public Issues program, a sociology master’s at Erasmus University Rotterdam. He is on course to graduate in 2023, and hopes to combine both his academic backgrounds to pursue his interests in neurosociology, neuroethics, and mental health policy.
