Caltech Celebrates 30 Years of its Computation and Neural Systems Option
Computation and Neural Systems student Stephen Dolbier, mentored by Professor Antonio Rangel, is a recipient of the 2017 Henry Ford II Scholar Award. He is working on a project that uses eye-tracking to predict human decision making. This summer, he will be a data science intern at Quotient Technology Inc.. The Henry Ford II Scholar Award is funded under an endowment provided by the Ford Motor Company Fund. The award is made annually to engineering students with the best academic record at the end of the third year of undergraduate study. 05.15.17
Athanassios G. Siapas, Professor of Computation and Neural Systems, has been named by the Department of Defense (DoD) as a 2017 Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellow. “The fellowship program provides research awards to top-tier researchers from U.S. universities to conduct revolutionary “high risk, high pay-off” research of strategic importance to the Department of Defense,” said Mary J. Miller, acting assistant secretary of defense for research and engineering. Professor Siapas has been named a fellow in the area of cognitive neuroscience. His research focuses on the study of information processing across networks of neurons, with emphasis on the neuronal mechanisms that underlie learning and memory formation. [DoD release]
