Narly Golestani heads the Brain and Language Lab at the Cognitive Science Hub of the University of Vienna, Austria, and at the Department of Psychology at the University of Geneva, Switzerland. She obtained her PhD in Clinical Psychology from McGill University (Montreal, Canada), and then did post-docs at INSERM (Orsay, France), and at the Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL (London, UK).

Her research makes use of a wide range of methods, including functional and structural imaging, computational modelling of brain function, computational morphometry, machine learning, advanced statistical procedures and neuropsychology, along with more conventional experimental psycholinguistics and psychophysics approaches. These approaches are used to advance our understanding of the brain and language processing at low (i.e. auditory, phonetic) to high (e.g. multilingualism, language control) levels of processing, in the context of healthy individual differences, language and auditory expertise, and language disorder.
