Personal profile


Pippa Iva received her Bachelor of Behavioural Neuroscience with Honours in 2015 and is currently working towards a Doctor of Philosophy at Monash University. 

Her early research years involved behavioural and electrophysiological assessments to evaluate cortical changes after diffuse traumatic brain injury in animal models. Since then, her PhD research has focussed on evaluating speech processing in individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). She has identified novel deficits in high-level auditory processing caused by MS pathology, which provides some insight into the communication difficulties reported by this clinical population. 

Pippa also assists in the coordination of the Industry Internship Program within the Masters of Biomedical Health Sciences through sourcing placements for students who wish to develop a career within industry.
