Hayriye Cagnan studied Electrical and Electronics engineering at Cornell University as a Fulbright Scholar and specialised in signal processing and biomedical engineering (2000-2004). In 2004, she was awarded a British Chevening scholarship and was accepted to the M.Sc. programme in Engineering and Physical Science in Medicine at Imperial College. Hayriye completed her Ph.D. in Neuroscience in a joint placement between the University of Amsterdam and Philips Research Laboratories in December 2010. Subsequently, Hayriye joined University of Oxford as a postdoctoral researcher and worked on tremor pathophysiology. In 2015, Hayriye was awarded a MRC Skills Development Fellowship in Biomedical Informatics, and was based at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at University College London. In 2018, Hayriye established her independent research group at the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit at University of Oxford after being awarded a MRC Career Development Award.

Hayriye joined the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London as a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in 2023.
