My primary interest lies in uncovering fundamental algorithms and principles of intelligence and intelligent behavior - be it biological or artificial. My current work revolves around theories of perception in the brain - specifically that the brain performs perception via probabilistic inference. I am interested in modeling and evaluating these theories on large scale neurophysiological recordings from the visual cortex using modern probabilistic machine learning methods.
