NEW FACULTY IN NUIN

Ann Kennedy, PhD

Ann Kennedy is a theoretical neuroscientist who studies population coding, learning
and the neural control of complex behavior. She applies computational and machine
learning techniques to study the structure of animal behavior, and to relate those
actions to the dynamics of interacting neural populations, to understand how multiple
brain regions interact to shape animals’ interactions with the world around them. Her
other work includes dynamical systems modeling of recurrently connected neural
populations, and analysis of learning and memory in the fly olfactory system and the
mormyrid electric fish.

FACULTY AND RESEARCH

NUIN is a research-oriented PhD program, highly interdisciplinary, collaborative, and with numerous and diverse foci of research excellence. Emphasis is based on clinically relevant as well as basic research.
