Cognitive Cartography

I am a researcher at the Topos Institute and DPhil (PhD) candidate at the University of Oxford studying the compositional structure of computational neuroscience, with a particular focus on cognitive maps, active inference, and neural coding, as well as autopoietic systems more generally. Previously, I completed a double MSc in Complex Systems Science at the École Polytechnique and ENS in Paris, and Chalmers University in Gothenburg, and I retain an interest in applying category-theoretic tools to the study of complex and adaptive systems. I also hold a BSc in mathematics from the Open University and a BA in psychology and philosophy from the University of Oxford.
