Emre Neftci, Assistant Professor

E-Mail: eneftci@uci.edu

Dr. Emre Neftci received his degree in Physics at EPF Lausanne and his PhD at ETH Zurich in neuromorphic computing. He continued his research at UC San Diego as a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Gert Cauwenberghs to investigate neural models for probabilistic state-dependent sensorimotor learning and processing in large-scale multi-neuron systems. Since 2015, Dr. Neftci is an assistant professor in the department of Cognitive Sciences and Computer Science at UC Irvine. His current research focuses on theoretical and computational modeling of learning in neural systems that exploit the characteristics of neuromorphic hardware.
