Felix joined the lab in May 2020. He has a background in theoretical condensed matter physics. In his PhD at the University of Würzburg he worked on topological systems, quantum computing, and quantum thermodynamics. Previously, he obtained degrees in physics from Rutgers University (MSc) and the University of Würzburg (BSc). Inspired by the interconnection of neuroscience with artificial intelligence research and the close relation to questions about life and human nature, Felix is hoping to transfer his skills towards the intriguing challenge posed by the brain’s complexity. His focus is going to be on inhibitory circuits and the role of interneuron diversity in associative memory networks.
