Shervin Safavi

Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics
PhD student
I was born in Iran and went through a very normal education, then I started my undergrad in University of Tehran. I trained as a physicist and toward end of my undergrad I found understanding the brain fascinating, in particular its cognitive capabilities. I moved to Germany to learn a bit more about neuroscience. I stayed there and start my PhD in Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. Initially I intended to understand better the neural mechanisms of visual awareness, but then due to various reason I quite experimental work and moved to neural data analysis and computational neuroscience. I'm still struggling with PhD!
