Bradley Voytek is an associate professor in the Department of Cognitive Science at UC San Diego and is the inaugural Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute Fellow. In addition, he’s an Alfred P. Sloan Neuroscience Research Fellow and National Academies Kavli Fellow as well as a founding faculty member of the UC San Diego Data Science program and the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute. His research lab studies the computational role that neural oscillations play in coordinating information transfer in the brain. To do this, they combine large-scale data mining and machine learning techniques with hypothesis-driven experimental research. He’s also known for his zombie brain “research” with his friend and fellow neuroscientist Timothy Verstynen, with whom he has published the book Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep?
