Welcome to the page of Dr. Tim Christian Kietzmann. I am an Assistant Professor and Associate PI at the AI department of the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour (Radboud University), as well as a Senior Research Associate at the MRC Cognition and Brain Science Unit (University of Cambridge). I investigate principles of neural information processing using tools from machine learning and deep learning, applied to neuroimaging data recorded at high temporal (EEG/MEG) and spatial (fMRI) resolution. Please contact me with any questions or paper requests, and follow me on twitter (@TimKietzmann) for latest updates.

Please reach out to us if you are interested in joining the lab and see our page on equity, diversity, and inclusion for further information.


Research Interests

Cognitive Neuroscience meets Machine Learning. Our research group aims to understand the computational processes by which the brain and artificial agents can efficiently and robustly derive meaning from the world around us. We ask how the brain acquires versatile representations from the statistical regularities in the input, how sensory information is dynamically transformed in the cortical network, and which information is extracted by the brain to support higher-level cognition. To find answers to these questions, we develop and employ machine learning techniques to discover and model structure in high-dimensional neural data.

As a target modality, we focus on vision, the most dominant of our senses both neurally and perceptually. To gain insight into the intricate system that enables us to see, the group advances along two interconnected lines of research: machine learning for discovery in neuroscience, and deep neural network modelling. This interdisciplinary work combines machine learning, computational neuroscience, computer vision, and semantics. Our work is therefore at the heart of the emerging fields of neuro-inspired machine learning and cognitive computational neuroscience.

A new @SciRobotics study of human hand augmentation in 36 participants suggests that our brains can readily adapt to an extra thumb, but using the additional appendage may alter the relationship between the #brain and biological hand. https://fcld.ly/jdwp5dj #robots

Zoom to pay $85 million in settlement because (i) they lied about offering end-to-end encryption and (ii) gave user data to Facebook and Google without user consent.

My son just announced his latest realisation: "Our caravan does not have an office, so you cannot work during the holidays". I am trying my best Enno, I truly am. Holidays start this weekend, and I am planning to not even take the laptop with me. A first in... forever.

Shout out to everyone starting their @neuromatch DL journey today! What an amazing three weeks you have ahead of you.
