Borja Blanco recently defended his PhD, and completed his time as a student in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL). His research interests mainly concern signal processing and data analysis methods for neuroimaging techniques employed in infant research (fNIRS and EEG). In particular, he is interested in investigating resting-state activity and language processing in infant populations in the context of bilingualism.

Borja was a visiting student at DOT-HUB, working in a project to study resting-state activity in healthy term infants during different sleep-stages with the high-density diffuse optical tomography LUMO system, in a collaboration with the neoLAB research group at Cambridge. He has since taken a post-doctoral position at the Cambridge Babylab, where he is translating HD-DOT into new populations and environments.
