About Us

We are two young neuroscientists curious about the world and our perception of it. We love exploring ideas and connecting the dots between different areas of knowledge, which is what led us both to the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience. We created Neuroverse as a way to explore and share ideas both within and beyond neuroscience. Importantly, we wanted to create something that is accessible and interesting to both scientists and non-scientists alike.

Carolina Soares

Carolina is originally from Portugal and has been living in the UK since 2016. Having completed a BSc in Biochemistry at Queen Mary University of London, she has a fascination for the molecular structure and function of biology, namely enzymes and proteins. However, she has always loved philosophy and found neuroscience to be an incredible scientific platform to prod at some philosophical questions. She completed an MscR in Integrative Neuroscience at The University of Edinburgh before joining Sonja Hofer's lab as a research assistant in the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre, UCL. She is currently starting a PhD at King's College London. Her research interests include consciousness, sensory perception, predictive coding, and cortical interactions.

Clara Lenherr

Clara is originally from Singapore and Switzerland and has been living in the UK for over 10 years. She has always been fascinated by the natural world and curious about what creates our reality, which is what continues to motivate her to research neuroscience. She completed a BSc in Neuroscience at King's College London and an MScR in Integrative Neuroscience at The University of Edinburgh, and is currently doing a PhD at the MRC Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders in King's College London. She is most interested in plasticity in the brain, the mechanisms that underly learning and memory, and how neurons process and encode information.

Our Team


Shivali Verma

Blog Writer

Shivali began her academic journey in India at Azim Premji University, where her passion for neuroscience began to take root. Shivali's fascination with the human brain and its complexities led her to London, where she is currently a MSc student in Brain and Mind Sciences at University College London (UCL). Shivali is most interested in researching neurodegeneration; beyond the lab she is passionate about making neuroscience accessible to the wider public. She aims to bridge the gap between complex scientific research and general understanding, inspiring more people to appreciate the intricate beauty of the brain.
