Mark Boon obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Applied Physics from the University of Twente in 2019, where he specialized in Materials Science. He mainly focused on modeling complex nanoelectronic devices using deep neural networks.
As a SCIoI doctoral student, Mark is investigating the interaction between learning and social perception. He aims to automatically monitor social learning behavior in group-housed mice and to model their behavior to gain an understanding of how social responsiveness is facilitating learning.
At SCIoI, Mark works on the Project 25, “Mice Learning in Social Interaction”.
