Research Interests

I have worked on biologically realistic computational models of early visual system. Important aspects of my work is that these models are strongly constrained by our knowledge about structural connectivity in the visual system and also that these models capture the development of the cortex, thus are able to explain how these complicated structures can arise from initial random conditions through few simple rules. My main motivation was to understand the biological system - the brain, however from a long term perspective I intend to go back to my original background - Artificial Intelligence - by transferring the gained knowledge into building artificial systems.
