Ph.D. student

I am a Ph.D. student in Pouya’s group. I am intrigued by how intelligent behavior emerges from neuron interactions, either biological or artificial. I build computational models of primates brain with a focus on artificial neural networks. Five facts about me: have lived in 3 different continents and North America will be the 4th one; whovian (non-certified); attempted to master Dutch, failed, same with C; 2021 (the year of ox) is my year; play the violin and good at math ;)
