Joel Z. Leibo, McGovern Institute Friends Fellow for 2012-2013
The Friends of the McGovern Institute Student Fellowship has been awarded to Joel Leibo for his work in Professor Tomaso Poggio’s lab.
Leibo’s research asks two key questions: How do we learn to recognize faces? And how can we build machines to do the same? He is applying his background in neuroscience and mathematics to the study of computational models of vision. Liebo plans to use the McGovern Institute’s newly acquired magnetoencephalography (MEG) scanner to decode face-related activity in the human brain.
