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.

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.
