I'm a researcher and data scientist interested in artificial intelligence, natural computation, robotics, and computational neuroscience.
My Ph.D. thesis (brief abstract) investigated how homeostatic synaptic scaling mechanisms acting in Alzheimer's disease can result in the effect of information-selectivity. This defines the way the disease spreads, and how it attacks the least significant neurons first, thereby making the disease harder to detect in its early stages. It also reveals a potential method for slowing the progression of the disease, by using electrostimulation to restore lost activity and reduce the need for synaptic scaling.
