About Me

I’m Grace Lindsay. I’m a computational neuroscientist and author.

I got my PhD at the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at Columbia University in the lab of Ken Miller. You can read about my thesis here. Before that I spent a year at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Freiburg, Germany (working with Arvind Kumar). And before that I got my BS in neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (working with Brent Doiron and Tai Sing Lee).

I’m currently a Sainsbury Wellcome Centre/Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit Research Fellow at University College London. I work on building functional and interpretable models of sensory processing. In Fall 2022, I’ll be starting as an Assistant Professor of Psychology and Data Science at New York University.

I’ve also written a popular science book about how and why we use mathematics to understand the brain. It’s called Models of the Mind: How physics, engineering and mathematics have shaped our understanding of the brain. More info on the book and how to get it here.
