Yaron Meirovitch

Postdoc Associate CSAIL MIT, CBS Harvard

I'm taking part in the Harvard-MIT effort to approximate the connectome of the mouse cortex. I'm working with Prof. Nir Shavit at the Theory Group (TOC) at CSAIL MIT on a pipeline automating accurate representations of neural tissue structures, such as nanometer-scale neurons' morphology and synaptic connections, in close collaboration with Jeff Lichtman and Samuel Aravi from Harvard University.

In the past I worked with Prof. Tamar Flash from the Applied Mathematics and Computer Scienece department at Weizmann Institute of Science on the geometry and optimality of human movement.
