Joel Z. Leibo, McGovern Institute Friends Fellow 2012-2013

The Friends of the McGovern Institute Student Fellowship has been awarded to Joel Leibo for his work in Prof. 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. Leibo plans to use the McGovern Institute’s newly acquired magnetoencephalography (MEG) scanner to decode face-related activity in the human brain.
