Lab Members

Aamir Abbasi, PhD
Postdoctoral fellow

Aamir completed his PhD in 2019 at Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (Neuro-PSI) affiliated with the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and University of Paris. His thesis research involved development of a closed-loop intracortical brain-machine interface (BMI) setup by combining electrophysiology for motor readout and optogenetics for somatosensory feedback. He used the BMI setup to show a causal role of somatosensory cortical maps in neuroprosthetic learning. His current project looks at the interplay between cerebello-cortical mechanisms of neuroprosthetic learning.

Pierson Fleischer, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow

Pierson graduated from Purdue University with a PhD in computational cognitive science in December 2018. His interest in artificial intelligence led him to pursue cognitive modeling. For his thesis project, he developed a model of rule-set learning and selection. He is currently investigating neural and computational basis of motor skill consolidation in the motor cortex and the cerebellum.

Nathan Danielsen
