Research Interests

I am a second year PhD student in the group of Prof. Angelika Steger. My research goal is understanding and building intelligence. To achieve this I work at the intersection of neuroscience and deep learning. I take inspiration from the brain to build new learning algorithms and take inspiration from machine learning techniques to find parallels in our brains.
