  • Xiwei She

    Xiwei She

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioDr. Xiwei She is a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Neurology. He received his B.S. degree in Computer Science from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2013, and his M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Zhejiang University in 2016. Worked as a research assistant at the USC Neural Modeling and Interface Laboratory, he received his Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Southern California in 2022. After graduation, he joined Stanford University as a postdoctoral scholar at the Pediatric Neurostimulation Laboratory (Baumer Lab) and Wu Tsai Neuroscience Institute.
    His research interests are largely directed toward identifying the causal relationship of neurons/brain regions and understanding how information is encoded in neural signals by employing machine learning models. Specifically, his postdoc research focuses on applying machine learning modeling techniques on EEG and TMS-EEG data to better understand the impact of interictal epileptiform discharges (IEDs) on brain activity in children with childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (CECTS).

  • James Stieger

    James Stieger

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioJames earned his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota. His research was focused on brain computer interfaces using EEG signals. His interests lie in the intersection of machine learning and real-time brain recording. James joined the LBCN with the intent to discover how focal brain activity can be harnessed to decode brain function and how to improve it in conditions such as epilepsy.

  • Minhui Su

    Minhui Su

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioMinhui Su, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow at the Neurology Department. She is investigating neuronal activity-regulated glioma growth, specifically how membrane depolarization regulates glioma growth in the tumor microenvironment.

    She obtained her PhD in Molecular Biology, with a focus on neuroimmunology, at the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) at Georg August University Göttingen, Germany. Her PhD research discovered that inflammation is an essential early step of myelin regeneration, and uncovered the roles of microglia (the resident immune cells of the central nervous system) in myelin damage response.

    She enjoys science, art and hiking in her free time.

  • Lia Talozzi

    Lia Talozzi

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioDr. Talozzi aims to contribute to the definition of quantitative biomarkers for neurological pathologies. She has a physics background, and a master's in applied physics. She graduated with honors from Bologna University, where she pursued her Ph.D. in Biomedical and Neuromotor Sciences. During her doctoral studies, she worked primarily with magnetic resonance imaging, majoring in tractography methods, for which she was awarded a scholarship at the Neuroanatomy and Tractography Laboratory, King's College London. Subsequently, she exploited dimensionality reduction techniques for associating white matter damage with clinical symptoms within the Bordeaux University Disconnectome ERC grant. Currently, she expanded her research horizons to genetic investigations by joining the Greicius Lab. She aims to develop novel strategies for modeling risk scores for Alzheimer's pathology using long read sequencing methodologies.

  • Gil Vantomme

    Gil Vantomme

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioI am a postdoctoral fellow interested in studying synaptic physiology and dysfunctions. My researcher focuses on thalamocortical circuits involving cortical structures relevant for cognition and executive function. Taking advantage of mouse models of autism spectrum disorder and epilepsy, I aim to uncover defects in synaptic function that underlie these disorders.
