Nicolas Roth is a PhD student working on computational models of attention. The aim of his project at SCIoI is to learn to form visual scene analysis strategies in humans, and employ these findings on computer vision tasks. This project is jointly supervised by Klaus Obermayer, Martin Rolfs, and Olaf Hellwich. Nico has studied physics at Ruprecht Karl University of Heidelberg, where he was mainly concerned with computational astrophysics and image processing for applications in environmental physics. Before joining SCIoI, he worked in theoretical neuroscience, more specifically predicting the impact of external stimulation on the dynamics of whole brain networks.
