Matthias Kaschube

(2006-2011). Currently: Professor for "Computational Neuroscience / Computational Vision" at the Bernstein Focus Neurotechnology (BFNT) Frankfurt, the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies and the Goethe University in Frankfurt.


My research takes an empirically driven theoretical approach to understanding how organization and function in living systems arises form the collective dynamics of their constituent parts. I am focusing on two systems: In cortical development, I study how neurons grow and develop into networks capable of forming representations of the sensory world; in fruit fly embryos, I study how cellular forces are coordinated across a tissue to achieve morphogenesis.
