Assistant Professor Tatiana Engel was named a 2020 Sloan Fellow. Engel is being honored for her work in the field of neuroscience. Her lab focuses on developing computational models of how populations of neurons in the brain give rise to cognition and how this neural activity is coordinated across different regions of the brain.
“I’m very honored by this award, especially because the name of the Sloan Foundation was associated with a large network of computational neuroscience centers across the country,” Engel said.
“This fellowship will help me to take my research in very diverse directions.”
The Sloan Fellowship is awarded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is home to six current and past Sloan Research Fellows, including Professor Anthony Zador, Assistant Professor David McCandlish, and Adjunct Associate Professor Michael Schatz.
