Thijs van der Plas


DPhil Student

I am a DPhil student in the lab of Adam Packer, studying how the effective dimensionality of a neuronal network dynamically varies and affects sensory computation. We combine advanced data analysis and network modelling methods in collaboration with colleagues in the lab.

Previously, I obtained my BSc in Physics at the Radboud University (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) with a research thesis on latent variable inference of BOLD signals under supervision of Bert Kappen. Subsequently I obtained my MSc in Physics at the Radboud University, crunching whole-brain zebrafish calcium recordings in collaboration with Georges Debregeas (Sorbonne University, Paris), under supervision of Bernhard Englitz.
