Nick Steinmetz

I am a Senior Research Associate in the lab of Profs. Matteo Carandini and Kenneth Harris at University College London and Program Coordinator for a Collaborative Grant from the Wellcome Trust to develop Neuropixels 2.0.

In January 2019 I will start a lab in the Department of Biological Structure at the University of Washington, in Seattle.

My research at UCL focuses on understanding the neural circuits and systems that underlie perception and cognition across the brain. I approach these questions through a combination of large-scale electrophysiology with Neuropixels probes, calcium imaging across neocortical areas, and systematic optogenetic manipulations, all in combination with a sophisticated behavioral task for mice.

Please find here my CV, list of publications, and descriptions of shared code and datasets.

My work is funded by postdoctoral fellowships from the Marie Curie Action of the EU and from the Human Frontier Sciences Program, along with grants to the lab from the Wellcome Trust, Gatsby Charitable Foundation, and European Research Council.
