My name is Petruț Bogdan, aka. Peter. I am a PhD student working on structural plasticity on the SpiNNaker Neuromorphic Platform at the University of Manchester. My current research focuses on creating reusable models of synaptic rewiring and neurogenesis for topographic map formation, sensory integration and reinforcement learning. I have also been assisting with the following undergraduate courses: Mobile Systems, Microcontrollers and Fundamentals of Computer Engineering.
I obtained a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Manchester. For my final year project I created a spiking neuron-based robot control system for an art exhibition unveiled at the Manchester Art Gallery from February to June 2016 (video).
I am also a Student Ambassador for the Human Brain Project. We're currently busy organising the 3rd HBP Student Conference on Interdisciplinary Brain Research on the 6-7 February 2019 in Ghent, Belgium.
