Kameron Harris, postdoctoral fellow in UW CNC faculty member Bing Brunton's lab, has been selected as a member of the inaugural cohort of Washington Research Foundation Postdoctoral Fellows. The three-year fellowship will support Kameron in his work focused on expanding our understanding of brain wiring and activity using machine learning techniques. Kameron recently completed his doctoral training in Applied Mathematics under the mentorship of CNC co-director Eric Shea-Brown. See more on Kameron's research [...]
Joint UWIN-Computational Neuroscience fellow Kaitlyn Casimo has been named one of the 2018 Husky 100. This award recognizes 100 undergraduate and graduate students from across Bothell, Seattle, and Tacoma campuses "who are making the most of their time at UW". Kaitlyn is a graduate student in the Ojemann lab, studying the electrophysiology of human resting state and task based brain connectivity, working with patients undergoing epilepsy surgery. Kaitlyn has been active in scientific [...]
We are happy to announce two new options for students interested in Neural Computation and Engineering- an undergraduate minor and a graduate certificate. These programs are open to all UW students, and offer interdisciplinary training on quantitative, mathematical, engineering, and computational approaches. Please see the individual pages for more information on the requirements and how to enroll.
Tomorrow evening, October 25th, Neural Computation and Engineering graduate student Kaitlyn Casimo will be presenting a Halloween special at the Pacific Science Center: “Frankenstein: a modern postmortem”. This talk will present an updated take on the fascinating moral ambiguities of the Frankenstein story and where we stand today, both technically and ethically, on the engineering of minds. "Frankenstein" is the latest in a series that Kaitlyn has presented in her role as a [...]
Please save the date for the 2018 Neural Computation and Engineering Connection, which will be held on January 18 and 19 at the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering and the Hub. The meeting will have an excellent lineup of local and invited speakers. Schedule to follow.
Two young computational neuroscientists, who contributed so much to the UW community when they were here as graduate students, offer some reflections and previews of the faculty life. Joshua Goldwyn is starting a faculty position in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Swarthmore College. He is feeling “thrilled” to be in a “unique environment that features rigorous academics in a wonderfully warm and supportive community” where “the students are second-to-none in their [...]
