Short Bio

Karim Jerbi is a professor at the Psychology department of the University of Montreal. He is Canada Research Chair in Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Neuroimaging and heads UNIQUE, the Quebec-wide Neuro-AI research center. He is also associate professor at Mila (the Quebec AI research institute). Dr Jerbi holds a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience and Brain Imaging from the Pierre & Marie Curie University in Paris and a biomedical engineering degree from the University of Karlsruhe (Germany). His research lies at the crossroads between cognitive, computational and clinical neuroscience. The specific goal of the research conducted in his lab is (1) to elucidate the role of neural oscillations and large-scale neural communication in cognition (incl. decision-making, attention, consciousness, creativity), and (2) to investigate brain network alterations in psychiatric and neurological disorders. The multidisciplinary research conducted in his laboratory combines brain imaging techniques, such as magnetoencephalography (MEG), scalp- and intracranial electroencephalography (EEG) with advanced signal processing, modeling and data analytics including machine learning. Dr Jerbi also has a keen interest in the convergence between neuroscience, AI and art, as well as the promotion of justice in and outside science.
