Our staff runs like a well-oiled machine, offering all of our clients smart and useful products aimed at making their lives better. Read below to learn more about the incredible neurosyense team.
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 one held at the University of Oxford in June/18.
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.
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.
Game Development Lead. An undergrad at Carnegie Mellon University, Anna is attaining a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Art, with minors in Animation, Game Design & Human Computer Interaction. Anna did an internship at Bristol-Myers Squibb; did an academic project for the Boston Consulting Group (BCG); worked as an advisor for Makers' Technology Lab; and did an apprenticeship for X (AiPEX) Lab. She's looking forward to developing game-based challenges for neurohire.
Computer Vision Lead, on leave until the end of February. Arpit has a Masters from USC after having graduated with distinction from the Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute, Mumbai. His research assistantships include a Deep Learning Research Assistantship for the Wireless Devices and Systems Group (WiDeS) at USC & one at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) in Mumbai. Arpit also won the prestigious FORD Prize at the UC Berkeley Hackathon 6.0 less than a year ago
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-

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.
