Josh Merel

Josh Merel was an undergraduate in the Biological Basis of Behavior program.  His senior thesis involved two directions of research: (1) the statistics of shapes in natural scenes and the representation of shapes in Inferotemporal Cortex, and (2) possible algorithms for goal-directed navigation based on the representation of location by hippocampal place cells.  After  a Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience at Columbia he moved to Google Deep Mind.
