Melanie Stefan

Melanie I Stefan, Group leader

My research interests revolve around using computers to understand learning and memory, from simulating how proteins in the brain work together to strengthen the connection between neurons to using educational data to understand how students learn.

Christine Lee

Christine Lee, PhD student

My research interests include using software to assist in analyzing student behavior on online test-taking platforms, and to hopefully help teachers better tailor their classes according to their students' needs.

Richard Fitzpatrick

Richard Fitzpatrick, PhD student

My interests extend from developmental neuroscience all the way to learning and memory, and how signalling pathway interactions can be understood in relation to cognition and behaviour. My current work is the multi-scale modelling of intellectual disability disorders such as Fragile X Syndrome, integrating biochemical and electrophysiological data to give a more complete idea of what is going on in the system as a whole. I'm also heavily interested in Philosophy of Mind, in my spare time attempting to provide a neuroscientifically-grounded enactivist account of declarative memory.
