Short bio and research interests

Rubén Armañanzas (a.k.a. Ruben Armananzas) obtained his Ph.D. in Biological Computation in 2009 (extraordinary doctorate award 08-09) at University of the Basque Country, Spain. He moved to Madrid to work at the Technical University of Madrid within the Blue Brain Project until fall 2013. He is currently a research assistant professor at the Center for Neural Informatics, Neural Structures, and Neural Plasticity of the Krasnow Institute at George Mason University.

His research topics include machine learning, computational neuroscience, and data science in life sciences. In particular, applications within these topics are: knowledge discovery in digital neuronal reconstructions, automatic classification of neuronal types, complex neuromorphic networks, and unveiling key aspects of neuronal morphogenesis in the developing brain.
