Dr Dimitris Pinotsis is a Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) at the Centre for Mathematical Neuroscience and Psychology and the Department of Psychology at City, University of London. He is also a Research Affiliate at the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory and the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Previously, he was a Senior Research Fellow at UCL’s Wellcome Trust Center for Neuroimaging and a Senior Scientist at MIT. Dimitris holds a PhD and an MSc in Mathematics from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) of the University of Cambridge, UK. His research has been funded by the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research, UK Research Councils (EPSRC) and the Wellcome Trust. It spans diverse areas including machine learning, the analysis of big data in neuroimaging, theoretical neurobiology and nonlinear systems in mathematical physics. In recent work, Dimitris exploits deep neural networks and hierarchical Bayesian inference to understand the causes of neurological and psychiatric disorders. He also exploits brain recordings to build better artificial intelligence algorithms. Dimitris is an Expert Reviewer for US Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Austrian Science Fund and the Italian Ministry of Health.
