About

Hannah Choi, Ph.D.@UW Institute for Neuroengineering & Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Washington+Allen Institute for Brain Science

Curriculum Vitae

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington and also a visiting scientist at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, working with Eric Shea-Brown and Stefan Mihalas.

In Spring 2018, I spent a semester at Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at the University of California, Berkeley, as a Simons Berkeley Research Fellow and Patrick J McGovern Research Fellow. Previously, I was awarded a Washington Research Foundation Innovation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neuroengineering to work with Eric Shea-Brown, Wyeth Bair and Anitha Pasupathy. Before coming to the University of Washington, I received my PhD in Applied Mathematics from Northwestern University, advised by Hermann Riecke and William Kath, and my BA in Applied Mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley.

I am primarily interested in various topics in computational neuroscience, including optimal coding, dynamical systems, information theory, and mathematical modeling of single and populations of neurons. Specifically, my recent projects aim to understand how the visual information is processed in the ventral visual pathway of the brain, to evaluate predictive coding models in sensory systems, and to probe structures and dynamics of the mesoscopic brain network.
