Portrait of Jennifer Goldman

Jennifer Goldman

Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique

Jennifer Sarah Goldman is fascinated by brain function and passionate about connecting data across space-time scales toward understanding neural codes, engineering better interventions for brain dysfunction, and pioneering novel brain-inspired computing technologies. Jennifer completed her PhD at the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University using empirical methods in molecular and cellular biology with microscopy and electrophysiology to study communication within neuronal networks. Toward understanding how microscopic processes relate to macroscopic, whole brain dynamics, Jennifer now works as a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Alain Destexhe, studying existent methods and pioneering new theoretical approaches to understanding brain structure and function across space-time scales. Her current work on a comprehensive model of conscious- and unconscious-like brain activity has become Showcase 3 of the HBP.
