Robert Tjarko Lange works at the intersection of machine learning and behavioural biology. His research combines tools from top-down optimisation (e.g. Reinforcement Learning) with bottom-up phenomenological modelling. Thereby, nature and nurture are analysed from a complementary perspective and not as forces that trade-off. Before joining SCIoI, he obtained a MSc in Computing from Imperial College London and conducted research within the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin.

At SCIoI, Robert is working on Project 12.
