I am a lecturer (tenured university position) at Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Biological Systems of the School of Computing at the University of Leeds. Before that I worked at the Chair for Robotics and Embedded Systems at the Technical University Munich where I was deputy coordinator of Thematic Network nEUro-IT.net.

Project MECHAPOP was selected as one of the four projects to be funded in Competitive Call of the Human Brain Project (total 53 submissions). The topic is 'Theory of Multiscale Circuits'. We will be working on population density techniques.

Research Interests

  • Population Density Techniques
  • Combinatorial productivity in neural networks. A tutorial can be found here. A rather technical overview of most of the work in this area is in our BBS paper.
  • Efficient simulation of groups of spiking neurons using population density techniques
  • Visual attention and visual search
  • Neuroinformatics
  • Projects

    In 2013/2014 I have taught the modules 'Bio-inspired Computing': one at the undergraduates level and one for master’s students. I also teach 'Models and Simulation' to IT students.
