Born: 1977

Interests: Computational neuroscience, learning rules for spiking neural networks

Details:
I am currently studying new learning rules for spiking neural networks. Their purpose is understanding how neurons learn in the brain, facilitating the training of artificial spiking neural networks in order to model brain function, and facilitating the use of spiking neural networks in machine learning and artificial intelligence, including robotics.

In a broader context, I am interested by computational embodied neuroscience, an interdisciplinary domain that bridges biologically-inspired robotics and artificial intelligence, evolutionary / developmental / epigenetic robotics, artificial life, and computational neuroscience.
