Associate Professor at KTH Royal Inst. of Tech. Stockholm, Sweden. I study dynamics of neuronal networks, neural coding, neural manifolds, communication across brain regions, neuromodulation and Cricket.
Helena is one of the co-directors of INCF (incf.org), with special responsibility for development & communications. She serves as the chair of NMA's communication and outreach committee, and is happy that INCF is able to provide the Q&A forum Neurostars.org for NMA's students and mentors.
Songting is an associate professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. He works on single neuron computation, neuronal network dynamics, and brain-inspired machine learning. He helped organize the NMA in China, and helped develop the tutorials of the single-neuron day and dynamical-system day etc.
PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Pennsylvania working with Konrad Kording and Lyle Ungar. Content creator for Week 3, Day 3 Causality tutorials alongside Ari Benjamin and Konrad Kording.
Jesse Livezey (he/him/his)
Jesse is currently a postdoc at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab working with Kris Bouchard. He works on developing data analysis and machine learning methods for neuroscience data (and sometimes data from other fields). Jesse was a Lead TA and helped edit the NMA tutorials.
Professor for `Machine Learning in Science' at Tübingen University. Develops probabilistic machine learning methods for analysing neural and behavioural data. At neuromatch, organised and co-designed the `GLM day' (W1D4).
Assistant Professor at UC San Diego. For NMA, Marcelo was a content creator of the Reinforcement Learning day (W2D5), preparing the exercises for the tutorials and two of the tutorial videos.
PhD student at Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, London. For the NMA, Jorge helped develop the content for the Deep Learning 1 day, including writing two of the Jupyter notebooks.
I am a research intern at the Laboratory of Computational Neuroscience at IIT Madras, India. The brain is a whole other universe to me. My interest in the brain and how neurons communicate stemmed from an interaction of human communication and biotechnology in my life. I am also interested in education and mental health. At other times, I am a professional dancer, I sing, I write and I am a dreamer in cahoots with my imagination. I volunteered as a caption editor at NMA.
Master's graduate from King's College London, currently applying to PhD programmes in computational neuroscience. Prakriti moonlights as a freelance editor of neuroscience academic manuscripts. For the NMA, Prakriti worked as a video editor. An archer and a voracious reader.
Assistant Professor of Cognitive Sciences at UC Irvine. Perception, metacognition, consciousness, computational models, neuroimaging. NMA co-founder, President, Board member, Executive Chair. Helped wrangle corporate, legal, evaluation, and community; co-organized professional development; lecturer.
Assistant professor of computational neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine and Rice University. Likes probabilistic reasoning, nonlinear computation, control, neural manifolds, machine learning. Also, art and music. xaqlab.com
Computational Neuroscience Postdoc at EPFL, Switzerland. Maria was involved mostly at the beginning of NMA in communications and database management, while also participating in student applications review.
Ali is currently applying to neuroscience PhD programs. As part of the student experience, she had the pleasure of teaching yoga and meditation classes for NMA students in Zone 2, as well as supporting the karaoke events.
