Roman Bauer is an MRC Skills Development Fellow, with a research focus on neural development. He devises and analyses computational and statistical models of how cortical and retinal tissue evolves during development, in order to better understand the dynamics leading to healthy and pathological states. These models incorporate the interaction between genetic rules and physical laws of the extracellular environment. Since such a detailed approach can be very demanding from a computational point of view, his research also involves modern computing approaches and IT-related collaboration.
Roman received his Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Computational Science and Engineering from ETH Zuerich, Switzerland. Afterwards, he did his doctoral studies with Prof. Rodney Douglas at the Institute for Neuroinformatics (INI) at ETH and University Zuerich, working on simulations of cortical development. He joined Prof. Marcus Kaiser's lab in September 2013 and afterwards started his MRC fellowship project in September 2016.
