Trang-Anh Nghiem

Trang-Anh studied physics at the University of Cambridge and cognitive science at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. Her research focuses on understanding how macroscopic cognitive functions like visual perception emerge from intricate microscopic interactions within biological neural networks. In particular, she is interested in how incessant background ‘noise’ from spontaneous neural activity and from involuntary eye movements can shape and sometimes support neural coding and computation. She uses tools from statistical physics, information theory, and machine learning to construct computational models alongside behavioral and large-scale neural data analysis.
