Hello. My name’s Jon Brock. I’m a science writer based in Sydney, Australia, specialising in psychology and neuroscience. I’ve written for Scientific American, The Guardian, The Conversation, The Psychologist, Frontiers for Young Minds, Spectrum News, Nature Index, UNSW News, and Careers with STEM.
My background is in cognitive science. I have a PhD in Psychology and completed post-docs at the University of Bristol, University of Oxford, and Macquarie University, Sydney, where I held an ARC Australian Research Fellowship. My research focused on neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism, Williams syndrome, and Down syndrome, combining psychometric assessments with eye-tracking and electro- and magnetoencephalography measures of brain activity.
