Personal profile

Biographical details

Dr Vincent Giampietro is a Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience Education in the Department of Neuroimaging, Division of Neuroscience, at King’s College London.

Dr Giampietro's current research focuses on brain plasticity, in particular on the development of real-time fMRI neurofeedback as a novel neurotherapy, and on determining how entrepreneurship can be better taught by understanding what is looks like in the brain.

Dr Giampietro trained as an engineer at the Université de Technologie de Compiègne (UTC), one of France's Grandes Ecoles, majoring in Biomedical & Computer Engineering and minoring in Cognitive Science & Epistemology. He was later on awarded a PhD in Biometry by King's College London, for which he developed software for the real-time analysis of fMRI data (the technology underpinning his neurofeedback work). In parallel to his studies and early research career, he worked for more than 10 years as a Unix/Linux System Administrator.

Dr Giampietro also occupies a leading Education role, both in neuroimaging (as MSc Neuroimaging Programme Leader and Neuroimaging Education Lead) and for the faculty (as Chair of Faculty Postgraduate Assessment Board and Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Academic Lead). He set up the MSc Neuroimaging in 2011 and has since been nominated every year by his students for the King’s College London Teaching Excellence Award, which he obtained in 2014.

Dr Giampietro is of the opinion that nothing is too difficult to be taught, especially when making full use of contemporary educational approaches, of today’s e-learning technologies, and of the vast amount of open resources available online.
