Leyla Isik

Leyla Isik, Membership Chair [lisik [at] mit [dot] edu]I am a third year PhD student in Computational and Systems Biology. My research is in computational neuroscience and vision. I am particularly interested in studying the mechanisms that allow humans to recognize objects under a wide-variety of conditions and translating those mechanisms to a computational system.

I am very excited to be a part of GWAMIT. I believe the group provides a great service to the MIT community through its programming. I first got involved with GWAMIT through the advocacy sub-group and helping plan the 2012 Spring Empowerment conference. I hope to help GWAMIT reach more of the graduate population as well as continue to enhance the roles and objectives of GWAMIT members.
