Computational Learning and Memory Group
Cristina Savin joined the group as a postdoc in 2010. Previously, she had studied Computer Science at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, and did her PhD in the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies with Jochen Triesch. She is interested in how different plasticity mechanisms interact to achieve interesting computation in neural circuits.
Balázs Ujfalussy joined the group as a postdoc in 2011. Previously, he had studied biology and neurobiology for his MSc and PhD at Eötvös University while working in the computational neuroscience lab of Péter Érdi. He is interested in normative models of dendritic processing.
Sina Tootoonian joined the group as a postdoc in 2012. He
did his PhD on data analysis and modeling of the locust olfactory
system in the lab of Gilles Laurent at Caltech and at the MPI for Brain Research in Frankfurt, Germany. He is interested in normative
models of olfactory processing.
Guillaume Hennequin joined the group as a postdoc in 2012 on a fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation. He
holds a PhD in computational neuroscience from the
EPFL where he studied in the lab of
Wulfram Gerstner. Guillaume is
interested in the dynamics of balanced cortical circuits, and how
these support complex computations. He also maintains an active
interest in synaptic plasticity.
Johannes Friedrich joined the group as a postdoc in 2013 on a fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation. He obtained his PhD at the University of Bern where he studied in the computational neuroscience lab of Walter Senn. Previously, Johannes had studied physics at the Universities of Würzburg and Toronto. His current interests are in normative models of decision making in the face of uncertainty and the underlying mechanisms of synaptic plasticity.
Emil Hewage joined the group as a PhD student in 2011 after having obtained an MEng at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge.
Dylan Festa joined the group as a PhD student in 2012 after having obtained a Masters in Physics at the University of Pisa and worked as an Erasmus Scholar in Fred Wolf's Theoretical Neuroscience group at the Max Planck Institute in Göttingen.
