Portrait at TENSS

Welcome, I am Alexander Mathis. My main research interests comprise the neural basis of olfactory and motor behaviors. More specifically, I am currently interested in odor-guided navigation, the olfactory cocktail party problem and motor adaptation. I have been awarded a Marie-Curie fellowship (Department news) .

I work as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Matthias Bethge at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Tuebingen and the University of Tuebingen and the lab of Venkatesh N. Murthy at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University.

Mar 2017: First motor study with Mackenzie Mathis and Naoshige Uchida published (see publications).
Feb 2017: Two abstracts accepted for the Neural Control of Movement Conference in Dublin - I hope to see you in May (see abstracts)!
Jan 2017: Together with my collaborators I had two posters accepted at Cosyne and am excited to attend the conference for the first time!
