I am currently a professor (W1 tenure-track) at the Computer Science Department in Goethe University Frankfurt. I am also a research affiliate at MIT. Before I was ass. prof. at Singapore University of Technology and Design.  Previously, I was a postdoc fellow at MIT in the Center for Brains Minds and Machines with Prof. Tomaso Poggio. I was also affiliated at the Laboratory for Computational and Statistical Learning. I pursued my doctoral degree in Computer Vision at ETH Zurich.

Ulrike Knauf

I am a PhD student at CVAI lab in Goethe University Frankfurt, where I am advised by Prof. Gemma Roig. Before starting my PhD I've worked as an Engineer at Kamitani lab in ATR, Japan and Samsung R&D India. I did my Bachelors and Masters in Electrical Engineering at IIT Kanpur. I am interested in understanding how the human visual cortex works and then apply the gained insights towards creating agents with lifelong learning capabilities. I collaborate with Radek Cichy's lab and Michael Bonner's lab towards achieving my research goal.

Thao Phuong Ha Thi
PhD Student

I am a graduate student in computational neuroscience at GSN-LMU and I am currently in the preparatory year prior to my PhD phase.
I joined the Free University of Berlin and Goethe University Frankfurt in September 2020 as a research intern to work on a collaborative project with Prof. Cichy and Prof. Gemma Roig. My research interest lies in how machine learning can help understand visual processing. Specifically, I am comparing the performance of different machine learning models in predicting brain data (e.g. EEG, MEG, and fMRI).
