Gabriela Pavarini is a postdoctoral researcher at the Neuroscience, Ethics and Society Research Group, University of Oxford. She holds a doctorate in psychology from the Centre for Music and Science, University of Cambridge, focused on links between moral emotions and behavioural synchrony (e.g. joint singing).
Over the past two years she has added to these foundations by conducting empirical ethics research to integrate young people’s voices into debates surrounding digital technologies and wellbeing. Her work has been published in journals such as Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience and Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics. She has experience working with adolescents in the co-design of digital tools and implementation of large-scale engagement projects in ethics, technology and mental health.
In addition to her academic work, she co-leads the group of Young Leaders for the Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health and Sustainable Development and their global mental health campaign titled My Mind Our Humanity.
