Amir-Homayoun Javadi began his academic life with studying Electronics Engineering (BSc 1998-2004). He carried on with studying Mechatronics Engineering (MSc 2003-2006). Meanwhile he researched into artificial intelligence and was fascinated by memory and specifically biologically inspired learning algorithms. During his BSc and MSc studies he published two journal articles on robotics and control engineering and more than 20 conference papers. He began working as lecturer, researcher and developer in two universities and two companies during the last two years of his MSc studies and continued for two years after his graduation. Then he went to the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, London (2008) to do a PhD on Cognitive Neuroscience with the aim of studying learning and memory mechanisms with a closer perspective to biological systems. He finished his PhD one year ahead of the schedule (2008-2010) and graduated from University College London (UCL). He did a short post-doctoral job in The Berlin School of Mind and Brain, Humboldt University zu Berlin. Then he began his job in Dresden, Germany as a post-doctoral researcher in Neuroimaging Centre, Section of Systems Neuroscience. He is now a post-doctoral researcher in Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience, University College London, UK. In addition to his passion in learning and memory (from both engineering and scientific points of view), he is fascinated by Physics and Philosophy of Mind.
