Speaker Bio
Shreya Saxena is broadly interested in the neural control of complex, coordinated behavior. She is an Assistant Professor at the Wu Tsai Institute and Biomedical Engineering at Yale University, where she leads the Saxena Lab for Neural Control. Her PhD in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology dealt with performance limitations in sensorimotor control. During her postdoctoral research at the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at Columbia University’s Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, she developed machine learning methods for interpretable modeling of neural and behavioral data. Shreya received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), and an M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University. She is honored to have been selected as a Rising Star in both Electrical Engineering (2019) and Biomedical Engineering (2018).
