Andreas Stöckel

PhD Student in Computer Science

I am interested in a broad range of topics including ‒ but not limited to ‒ neuromorphic hardware, neurorobotics, and unsupervised learning strategies. While I have not decided on a topic for my PhD yet, I am currently extending the Neural Engineering Framework towards more detailed neuron models and efficient coding schemes.

Prior to joining the CNRG in January 2017, I have been a research assistant at the Cognitronics and Sensor Systems Group in Bielefeld, Germany, where I worked on neuromorphic hardware benchmarks and associative memory as part of the HBP neuromorphics subproject.

In my free time, I am either reading, building free software, tinkering with electronics, writing terrible German fantasy novels, or wandering around aimlessly, getting lost.
