Visitor Profiles

Dana Ballard

Visit from 2022/06/23 - 2022/08/19

Dana Ballard is a professor of Computer Science. His focus is on reverse engineering the brain where models of the brain are motivated by the technical problems the Brain’s circuits solve. These modules combine data from Neuroscience and Psychology as well Computer Science. Personal Homepage

TSVP Talk: "A Generative Model of Communication in the Brain" scheduled on July 21 at 4pm

Dana Ballard

 

Mog Stapleton

Visit from 2022/06/10 - 2023/03/31

Mog Stapleton is a researcher at East China Normal University. Her background is in cognitive science and philosophy (with master's degrees in both). She received her PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2012. Her research focuses on embodied, embedded, enactive, and extended (so-called "4E") approaches and on the importance of affect for cognitive science. She is co-editor-in-chief of the journal Cognitive Systems Research. Google Scholar

Leenoy Meshulam

Visit from 2022/05/09 - 2022/07/31

Leenoy Meshulam is a Swartz Theory Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Washington, Seattle. She works at the interface of physics and neuroscience, mainly drawing on theoretical frameworks from statistical physics and dynamical systems to uncover principles of brain function.  She is particularly interested in how function emerges from the coordinated activity of large neuronal populations. Dr. Meshulam received her PhD from Princeton University in 2018. Prior to that she completed her undergraduate and masters at Tel University, Israel. Here at OIST she is looking forward to fruitful interactions and collaborations. 

TSVP Talk: "Can We Hope for Simplicity When Describing the Brain?" on June 23 at 4pm

Leenoy Meshulam

 

Daniel Bulmash

Visit from 2022/03/21 - 2022/07/03

Dr. Danny Bulmash is a postdoctoral researcher in theoretical condensed matter physics at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received his Ph.D. in 2017 from Stanford University. His research interests are in proposing, classifying, and probing novel phases of matter, with particular expertise in topological phases. Google Scholar

TSVP Talk: "From Coffee Cups to Conductivity: Topological Phases of Matter and Beyond" on June 16 at 4pm
