I am a Professor of Bioengineering and Neurosciences at the University of California San Diego, where I hold the J. Robert Beyster Endowed Chair in Engineering. I am also the Founding Director of the Center for Engineered Natural Intelligence, and Associate Director of the Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind. My research aims to understand what the algorithms are that the brain uses, and how technologies can interface with the brain in order to treat neurological disorders. I am also exploring new forms of machine learning derived from neuroscience.
I write mostly about neuroscience and brain research, and their intersections with technology, engineering, and mathematics.
