Overview

Michael is a computer scientist dedicated to translating algorithms and processes from biology and the brain into solutions for data science and machine learning. He has a degree in Biology, a PhD in Chemical Informatics, as well as postdoctoral experience in developing and applying data science methods in Neuroscience, Chemistry, and Computer Science, solving problems in a wide area of fields ranging from drug discovery and brain imaging to gas sensing in turbulent environments. Michael is a pioneer in neuromorphic computing, an emerging technology that takes inspiration from the brain to achieve low-power and low-latency AI. He is now leading a team of researchers to develop event-based algorithms for neuromorphic olfaction,  low-latency detection and identification of chemical signals. 

Before joining the University of Hertfordshire in 2016, Michael held a Marie Curie Fellowship at the University of Sussex. He received funding from the EU, the German DFG and BMBF, Volkswagen Foundation and EPSRC. Michael leads the work package “Neuromorphic Applications and Benchmarks” within the European research flagship "Human Brain Project” and is a founding member of the NEUROTECH consortium to coordinate and support the advancement of neuromorphic technology in Europe.
