ScienceAbroad Los Angeles is proudly hosting series of Networking Coffee hours. Take a break from experiments, grab some coffee on us, listen to important academic tips from an Israeli Professor and chat with fellow Israeli researchers. On Friday April 13th between 10:30-12:00 we will be hosting Prof. Uri Maoz. Uri received his BS in Computer Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Amirim Honors Program for Outstanding Students in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Uri further received a PhD from the Hebrew University’s Interdisciplinary Center for Neural Computation, where he also worked as a teaching assistant. His thesis was titled “Trajectory Formation and Units of Action, from Two- to Three- Dimensional Motion.” During his PhD he was a guest at the Department of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at Weizmann Institute of Science and at the College de France in Paris. After a short post-doc at the Weizmann Institute he moved to Caltech to work with Christof Koch and later Ralph Adolphs, transitioning to work on what has become his main focus—computational accounts of the neural correlates of volition and moral decision-making. He then moved to UCLA first as a research professor in the department of Neurosurgery, working on machine-learning models to drive neural implants to aid in memory recovery and then as an adjunct professor in the Department of Psychology. Recently he took up a position as an Assistant Professor of Computational Neuroscience at the Psychology Department and the Brain Institute at Chapman University. He remains affiliated with UCLA and Caltech.
