Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany
Wiktor Młynarski is a professor of computational neuroscience at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU). After his undergraduate studies in applied computer science at the Jagiellonian University he pursued a PhD at the Max-Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences. Following a postdoc at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a fellow position at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA), he joined the LMU in June 2023.
In his work Wiktor explores theoretical principles of neural computation, with a particular focus on sensory systems. His group studies how the brain infers properties of the environment, represents sensory stimuli and adapts to the constantly changing circumtstances. To do so, the group relies on tools from information theory, statistics and computer science. Theories at the center of the groups work are substrate-independent and as such can be used to seek connections with different domains of biology to identify shared principles of information processing.
