I am a researcher specializing in neural dynamics and computation, with a distinct focus on unraveling the intricate mathematical and computational underpinnings of distributed compositional representations in message-passed systems. This encompasses a wide spectrum, ranging from computations transpiring within cortical regions to the behavior exhibited by swarms, locally distributed computing scenarios, and the profound workings of deep neural networks.
My research is centered on the captivating themes of emergence, self-organization, self-construction, plasticity, and collective behavior. I delve into the realm of non-linear dynamics to unearth how these elements interplay to yield stable computations and memory engrams. My ultimate aim is to uncover the foundational algorithms and data structures that not only elucidate these complex attributes but also derive from fundamental first-order principles, characterized by a minimalist parameter approach.
