Michael Beyeler is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroengineering and Data Science at the University of Washington, where he is working on computational models of bionic vision in order to improve the perceptual experience of blind patients implanted with a retinal prosthesis ("bionic eye"). His work lies at the intersection of neuroscience, computer engineering, computer vision, and machine learning. Michael is an active contributor to several open-source software projects, and has professional programming experience in Python, C/C++, CUDA, MATLAB, and Android. Michael received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine as well as a M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering and a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. When he is not "nerding out" on brains, he can be found on top of a snowy mountain, in front of a live band, or behind the piano.
