Dr Nina Fisher

I completed my BSc(Hons) here at Edinburgh Napier in 2014, I then did my PhD at the University of St Andrews before beginning a post-doctoral position at Edinburgh University in 2017.

My PhD examined the effect of musical training on emotional processing and cognitive abilities. My post-doc investigated turn-taking in music playing and in conversation.

I joined Edinburgh Napier in March 2020 as an associate lecturer and will teach on various modules including Introduction to Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, and Social Psychology.

I am a Music and Cognitive Psychologist interested in emotional processing during musical activity, as well as the similarities and differences between music and speech.
