Hi, my name is Wolf De Wulf and I am a computer scientist from Brussels.
I studied artificial intelligence (AI) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and I am currently researching AI in biomedical contexts, as part of the 2022 cohort of the UKRI CDT in Biomedical AI at the University of Edinburgh.

I just started my PhD for which I am investigating spatial codes in the hippocampus and medial entorhinal cortex. By analysing neural recordings of mice performing virtual reality navigation tasks I aim to find out how different types of neurons in these brain regions collaborate. Ultimately, my work might facilitate investigations into how navigation deficits arise in neural disorders such as early-stage Alzheimer’s disease and autism spectrum disorder.

I am jointly supervised by Professor Matthias Hennig and Professor Matthew Nolan.
