Adiel Mallik

Adiel is a postdoctoral fellow at the SMART lab. He obtained his doctoral degree in neuroscience from McGill University in 2019. His doctoral thesis focused on both examining the role of endogenous opioids in emotional responses to music and exploring the impact of music on social cognition. Adiel’s broad research interests include investigating how music impacts mental health and cognition and exploring the neurochemical effects of music. In his spare time, he enjoys playing and composing music on the piano.
