    Joseph Makin received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science from U.C. Berkeley in 2008, specializing in control theory. He is currently a research scientist at the Center for Integrative Neuroscience, U.C. San Francisco. His interests lie at the intersection of control theory, machine learning, complex systems, and computational neuroscience. Currently his focus is on computational models of multisensory processing and motor control in cortical circuits, and algorithm development for brain-machine interfaces.
