Our research group studies questions at the intersection of neuroscience and computation. In particular, we develop and apply statistical signal processing and machine learning techniques to elucidate how populations of neurons carry out computations in the brain. Further, we also develop experimental and algorithmic techniques for neural engineering applications, including brain-machine interfaces.
