I am a student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I study both behavioral neuroscience and computer science. I've received my MA in Behavioral Neuroscience in 2010, and am due to receive my MS in Computer Science and PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience in 2013.
I enjoy studying the visual system, and given that it is the most studied sensory system in neuroscience, I find it the perfect system to try and model computationally. I don't necessarily "build" models of the visual system, but I like to understand how things work in synergy. I believe that a lot of what we do is based on Baye's Theory and that we evaluate both the risk and reward based on known priors, and how we evaluate the total risk is what makes us decide our next action. I find all of this fascinating. I believe that patterns exist all around us in nature, and that if only we take inspiration from nature can we truly appreciate our own biology. I will fix this up later.
