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. On leave since July 2nd to focus on completing the last stage of his PhD thesis.
Olivia Stella Hansen, Product Manager
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.
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.
