Lukas Braun

BSc, MSc

DPhil Candidate

I joined Andrew Saxe's Lab in 2020 as a DPhil candidate. Before joining the University of Oxford I studied Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrück and Computational Neuroscience at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Berlin. My research aims at developing mathematical tools and using simulation studies to understand algorithms that describe and analyse learning in the brain. In particular, I am interested in the learning dynamics of gradient-based algorithms like the backpropagation algorithm and its variants and how they apply to learning in biological organisms.
