Romain Brasselet

After a degree in Theoretical Physics from University Aix-Marseille 2, Romain obtained a PhD in Computational Neuroscience from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (under the supervision of Angelo Arleo). He proceeded with a postdoc at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen (with Christoph Kayser and Stefano Panzeri), and another one at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (with Gustavo Deco). He is interested in applying statistical and mathematical methods, with a focus on information theory, to various fields of neuroscience.

In the lab, Romain is a pawn that can be sent anywhere on the chessboard. Most of the times, you'll find him hopelessly trying to teach us that particular branch of Statistics called How-Psychology-and-Neuroscience-Mistreat-Statistics. Apparently, we've only partially met the ligth. At the moment, Romain is in Domenica Bueti's lab, but he's still spending some time with us.
