Susanne Schweizer is an affective neuroscientist at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN). Her research is aimed at identifying new targets for interventions that prevent and treat mental health problems.

During her PhD and postdoc at the University of Cambridge, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit she has focused on how cognitive abilities interact with emotions to give rise to good or poor mental health, especially depression and posttraumatic stress disorder. Since joining the ICN Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Group as a Sir Henry Wellcome fellow Suzanne has extended her work to understand how these processes develop across the lifespan.
