David A. Mely, PhD

David completed his Ph.D. in Cognitive Science with Dr. Thomas Serre at Brown University, elaborating computational models of cortical micro-circuitry to explain contextual integration in human vision. Previously, David’s interest in thinking machines was sparked by Isaac Asimov’s novels; he went on to study mathematics, theoretical physics, and biology at the École Polytechnique. When he is not working towards AI, David is a bon vivant who always enjoys craft beer, jazz music, and swimming.
