Graduate students in machine learning and/or computational neuroscience

Bio and Brain Engineering (BBE) : We are seeking qualified candidates who are interested in computational neuroscience and/or brain-inspired AI.

Brain and cognitive engineering program (BCE program): We do NOT accept students unless exceptionally qualified.

Undergraduate research opportunities

Individual study, graduate study, and internships are available. If interested, send an email to
(1) a brief statement about your research interest and
(2) a transcript.

*URP program : if you were successful in the individual study, you may apply for the URP.

*Research topics (examples)
- deep learning + meta BCI (on EEG data)
- multi-agent reinforcement learning (AI soccer simulation)
- model-based deep reinforcement learning simulation
- model-based fMRI analysis (GLM, MVPA, DCM)
- exploring neural space via fast matrix computation (CovGram)
- deep learning-based experimental design (Deep neural experimenter)
- large-scale computational modeling on behavior data
