Brad Theilman

Computational Neuroscience Ph.D. Student at UC San Diego

I am a 4th-year graduate student in the Gentner lab at UCSD. My thesis work centers around applying ideas from algebraic topology to design new techniques for quantifying the spatiotemporal structure of neural activity in the auditory regions of the brain of the European starling.
