I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at RIT. I direct the Neural Adaptive Computing (NAC) Laboratory where we work on developing new learning procedures and computational architectures that embody various properties of biological neurocircuitry and are guided by theories of mind and brain functionality. My research focuses on predictive processing, active inference, spiking neural networks, competitive neural learning, neural-based cognitive modeling, and metaheuristic optimization.
