Gabriel Kreiman
Research Thrust Leader

Associated Research Thrust: 

Gabriel Kreiman is Associate Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School. He is also a faculty at Children’s Hospital, the Department of Neurology at HMS, the Center for Brain Science, the Swartz Center for Theoretical Neuroscience and the Mind, Brain and Behavior Initiative at Harvard. He studied Physical Chemistry for his B.Sc. at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina (1996). He received a M.Sc. and Ph.D. (Biology and Computational Neuroscience) from the California Institute of Technology in 2002 under Prof. Koch’s mentorship. He pursued postdoctoral work with Prof. Poggio at MIT. The Kreiman Laboratory combines computational modeling, neurophysiological recordings and psychophysical measurements to further our understanding of the neuronal circuits and mechanisms underlying perception and cognition.
