Timothée Masquelier

CNRS Researcher (CR1) in Computational Neuroscience

Centre de Recherche Cerveau et Cognition (CERCO), UMR5549 CNRS - Univ. Toulouse 3 , Toulouse, France

Keywords: neural coding, temporal coding, oscillations and phase-of-firing coding, spiking neurons, neurodynamics, biological and computational learning, spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP), biological and computational vision, object recognition.

I am a researcher in computational neuroscience. My research is highly interdisciplinary - at the interface between biology, computer science, and physics. I use numerical simulations and analytical calculations to gain understanding on how the brain works, and more specifically on how neurons process, encode and transmit information through action potentials (a.k.a spikes), in particular in the visual modality. I am also interested in bio-inspired computer vision and neuromorphic engineering.

I was trained at Ecole Centrale Paris (Ingénieur 1999), MIT (M. Sc. 2001), and Univ. Toulouse 3 (PhD 2008). I was recruited by the CNRS in 2012. You can download my complete resume here.
