Dr Bajada is a Lecturer working in the department of Physiology and Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine and surgery. His research focuses on three overarching themes:
1. Establishing a clear, consistent description of the white matter in the human brain. 2. Investigating historical aspects of neural white matter. 3. Using novel computational approaches to explore the human connectome
He graduated from medical school in 2010. After completing his foundation training at Mater Dei Hospital, Dr Bajada proceeded to complete an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from University College London (distinction). During the MSc he investigated the structural connectivity of the inferior frontal gyrus to the inferior parietal lobule and the anterior temporal lobe, areas that have been implicated in phonological and semantic processing of language.
Dr Bajada completed a PhD at The University of Manchester his project involved developing mathematical and neuroimaging approaches to understand the connective anatomy of the brain’s temporal lobe.
Prior to joining the University of Malta, Dr. Bajada worked as a postdoctoral research scientist at the Forschungszentrum Jülich.
