About the Neurd


I’m Grace Lindsay. I got my PhD from the Neurobiology & Behavior program at Columbia University, where I worked in the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience. You can read about my thesis work here. I got my BS in Neuroscience from University of Pittsburgh in 2011, where my main undergraduate work was a project on tuning curve quality and its relation to population coding accuracy (co-advised by Brent Doiron and Tai Sing Lee). Then I spent about a year working at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Freiburg, Germany, where I worked on how network structure affects correlations (advised by Arvind Kumar). I’ve tried my hand in a variety of neuro-labs, doing a variety of neuro-things, but right now I’m broadly interested in building interpretable, functional models of the brain, with a preference for sensory processing areas.

On the personal side of things: I grew up around Chicago. I was an early participant in Quora and the Couchsurfing project. And I try to use my available free time for writing, podcasting, reading, yoga, and art.

My CV: Academic | Industry

and my Google Scholar page: Google Scholar

I co-host this podcast: Unsupervised Thinking, about neuroscience and AI.

    You are awesome 🙂 Glad to find your you. I’m also trying to mess around with CNN and vision! I knew that first I’ve to read something like “Deep Convolutional Neural Networks as Models of the Visual System: Q&A” but I didn’t know where to find it, guess what I just found it :)))
