Short bio

Jérémie Knüsel @ BIRGJérémie Knüsel has an MSc in Physics from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (2006). He made his masters thesis at the school’s Laboratory of Computational Neuroscience, modelling the effects of stress and genotype on reinforcement learning meta-parameters for rodent navigation tasks. He joined the Biorobotics Laboratory as a PhD student in February 2008 to work on the LAMPETRA project.
