New Chair of Systems Engineering and Neuroscience
Wednesday, 01 May 2013
The University is delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Ingo Bojak as the new Chair in Systems Engineering and Neuroscience in the School of Systems Engineering as part of the Academic Investment Project.
Professor Bojak will also join the multidisciplinary research effort at University's Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics.
Professor Bojak is a computational neuroscientist specializing in brain function at the mesoscopic level, in the collective activity of hundreds of thousands of neurons. At the School of Systems Engineering he plans to continue his work on mesoscopic cortical dynamics and brain networks in health and disease, starting several new research projects including aspects of ageing, epilepsy and the effects of various psychoactive drugs.
Professor Bojak joins us from the Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics at the University of Birmingham. Previously to this he has worked around the globe, obtaining his PhD in Germany, then moving to Australia to study and work in Adelaide and Melbourne.
Before returning to the UK in 2011 Professor Bojak held a position as Senior Post-doctoral Fellow and Tenure Track Lecturer at the Centre for Neuroscience, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
