Our group is only starting to grow; we interact with a number of other groups here in Cambridge, including the control theory group (Rodolphe Sepulchre, Tim O'Leary), and other groups in the Computational and Biological Learning Lab (computational neuroscience & machine learning).
|Alberto Bernacchia joined Máté Lengyel's group as a senior research associate in 2016, and is co-supervised by me. He is interested in the dynamics of neural circuits during learning, memory storage and retrieval, decision-making and perception.|
|Rodrigo Echeveste joined Máté Lengyel's group as a postdoc in 2016, and is co-supervised by me. He studied Physics for his BCs and MSc at Balseiro Institute, in Argentina, working for his thesis with Inés Samengo, on categorization in autistic children. He later obtained a PhD in Physics from the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, where he worked in the group of Claudius Gros, developing synaptic plasticity rules. He is interested in dynamics of neural networks, synaptic plasticity, and learning.|
|Laurence Aitchison did a PhD at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience unit with Peter Latham, and recently joined Máté Lengyel's group as a postdoc, co-supervised by me. He has interests in Bayesian models of circuits, synapses, and human behaviour, as well as broader interests in social decision making, sampling-based probabilistic inference, and systems biology.|
|Dylan Festa joined Máté Lengyel's 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 Goettingen. He is co-supervised by me.|
I am also co-supervising Jake Stroud (primarily supervised by Tim Vogels in Oxford) on his PhD project.
