Personal profile


Dr Seewoo was awarded her PhD in Neuroscience at The University of Western Australia in 2022 and was recognised on the Dean's list. The title of her doctoral thesis is “In-vivo MRI study of the effects of low-intensity rTMS on brain activity, chemistry and structure in rats.” Upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science at Murdoch University (Australia) in 2015, she was awarded the university medal for being among the top seven graduating students across all disciplines. In 2016, she completed her Honours project entitled “Resting state fMRI study of brain activation using rTMS in rats” with an upper first-class outcome, following which she was awarded a Forrest Research Foundation Scholarship funded by the philanthropic donation of Andrew and Nicola Forrest. Bhedita’s research focuses on the use of in-vivo MRI to examine the effects of low-intensity rTMS on brain activity, chemistry, and structure in rodent models to inform protocol development for human studies.
