Rebecca Frankel, Founder & CEO.
Mathematician, the creative mind behind neurosyense and the machine-learning algorithm powering it. Educated at NYU and Yale. Completed all but one of the courses for the PhD in mathematics at Yale University, where she was awarded a fellowship. Sponsored at numerous prestigious math conferences, including ones held at the Fields Institute in Toronto and the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford.
Dr. Arthur Lubitz, MD, F.A.A.,A.I., Cofounder, Chief Strategy Officer.
Clinical Faculty of the NYU-Langone School of Medicine and attending allergist/immunologist at NYU-Langone Medical Center. Founder of Arthur Lubitz MD P.C. F.A.A.A.I., 30 years in existence. Appeared on local and national television as expert allergist. Acting chief of immunology at North General Hospital 1996-1999. An early believer in neurosyense, he has been an integral part of crafting and developing the vision driving it.
Benjamin Ostrowski, Team Science Lead.
A graduate with a BA in psychology from Brown University, Ben is a Ph.D. student in Organizational Behavior and Theory in the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, where he uses both quantitative (laboratory and field) and qualitative methods to address his research interests, which include team problem formulation, creativity, improvisation, and adaptability.
Dr. Jim Tao
Machine Learning Lead. Jim attained a doctorate in mathematics at the prestigious California Institute of Technology, after having attained a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from Princeton University. He completed certification as a Machine Learning Engineer from Workera in addition to over 550 hours in Data Science at Springboard. Jim was until now a postdoc research fellow at the ERCIM in Norway, and is looking forward to applying his myriad talents to neurosyense.
Software Engineering Intern. An undergrad at the University of Pennsylvania, Venu has done prestigious internships, including 1 at the Foundations of Cognition Laboratory at UC, San Francisco and another at UC, Santa Barbara. He is looking forward to applying his experience in machine learning to neurosyense.
Olivia is a junior at Columbia University pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree. She gained valuable experience at the Columbia University Sia Lab building a machine learning model designed to recognize antigen specific T cells. She is looking forward to applying her passion and skills to neurosyense, and will start on Monday, June 21st.
Game Development and Cybersecurity, Software Engineering, and Machine Learning Groups. A junior at the University of Pennsylvania, David's done software engineering & process engineering internships at Kulicke & Soffa as well as a social media marketing one at Just Born, Inc. David is excited to apply his knowledge and skills to the team at neurosyense.
Nhut Nguyen, Software Engineering Intern.
An undergraduate at Arizona State University, Nhut is majoring in computer science. Nhut collaborated on a team project to design a self-driving LEGO car that would be used in a car-sharing service for elderly and handicapped individuals, and is looking forward to contributing his skills to neurosyense.
Jeffrey Carr, Advisory Board member
Jeff's been on the faculty of NYU Stern School of Business for 23 years, where he teaches marketing, competitive strategy & entrepreneurship in the MBA, EMBA & undergrad programs. His distinguished career encompasses his role from '07- '12 as the Executive Director of the NYU Stern Berkley Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation. As a consultant he's worked extensively in Europe, Asia, Africa & the U.S. for clients such as IBM, Pfizer, Kodak, McCann-Erickson, Pepsi, Time Inc.
Shay Cohen, Advisory Board member
Shay's a Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, who attained his PhD from Carnegie-Mellon University. His interests are focused primarily in the intersection of computational linguistics & machine learning. He's interested in developing ways for reasoning about compositional structures such as parse trees through the use of formalisms such as probabilistic grammars. Much of his research has relied on capturing the syntax of natural language using probabilistic grammars.
Albert Einstein, Honorary member
Mirella Lapata, FRS, Advisory Board member
Mirella's a professor at the University of Edinburgh. Her research focuses on probabilistic learning techniques for natural language understanding and generation. She's interested in the general problem of extracting semantic information from large volumes of text & was awarded a €1.9M ERC grant for research into translating from multiple modalities to text.
Russell Lock, Advisory Board member
As part of a team of researchers from St Andrews & Edinburgh Russell performed observations of complex socio-technical systems, including the Scottish Elections in ‘07. A Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Loughborough University and an interdisciplinary software engineer, Russell’s research interests include socio-technical systems design, modeling, and analysis, sensor data gathering & analysis, and social networking technologies.
