Miguel Barretto Garcia is a decision neuroscientist, studying the nexus of perception and psychophysics in everyday decision making. Their work has appeared in wildness, Rattle, harana, Quarterly Literary Review Singapore, Cordite Poetry Review, among others. Miguel is also a spoken word performer and competes in poetry slams in Switzerland. Currently living between Zurich and London, Miguel is of mixed Filipino, Spanish, and Chinese heritage, and their work largely explores and meditates how the resonance of mishearing provides an opportunity for ideas, narratives, and traumas to discuss and collide, and how that may affect our perception of self, of the body, our relationship with others, the world at large, our past and futures.
