Dr Harriet Feldman

  • Stipendiary Lecturer in Neuroscience

I am an academic clinician currently working at the Department of Psychiatry. I did my preclinical medical degree at the University of Cambridge, before moving to UCL to complete a PhD in computational neuroscience with Prof Karl Friston. I returned to Oxford for my clinical studies in 2014. I began teaching at St Peter's in 2019.


I teach the neurosciences components of the course to 2nd year medicine and biomedical sciences, both at St Peter's and Oriel. I also give FHS tutorials on visual neurosciences and schizophrenia, as well as offering synoptic tutorials on accessing primary literature and critical analysis.


My research interest is neurobiological mechanisms of psychosis. I am interested in how genetic and immune factors interact to cause psychotic symptoms. I'm also interested in EEG as a diagnostic tool in psychiatry, and in integrating advanced EEG analysis methods into clinical practice.
