About

Dr. Marc-Oliver Gewaltig received his Ph.D. in Physics in 1999 from the Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany with a dissertation on the propagation of synchronous spike activity in cortical networks (Diesmann et al., 1999). From 1998, he worked for Honda R&D Europe in Offenbach/Main, Germany. In 2003, he became Project Manager for Computational Neuroscience at the newly founded Honda Research Institute Europe, where he developed detailed columnar models of information processing in the primate visual cortex (Schrader et al., 2009). In 2011, he joined the Blue Brain Project to head the Neurorobotics group, which aims to demonstrate the computational capabilities of the neocortical column in closed action-perception loops. He has a strong interest in the computer science and technology for large-scale neural simulations. He is co-author of the neural simulation tool NEST (Gewaltig&Diesmann, 2007) and co-founder of the NEST Initiative (http://www.nest-initiative.org).
