Yasser Roudi obtained his PhD in 2005 from SISSA. He then moved to the Gatsby Unit at University College London as a Senior Research Fellow, where he stayed until 2008. During this period he also spent time at Dept. of Physiology and Biophysics of Cornell University working as a visiting scientist after winning a Bogue Research Fellowship. He then moved to Nordita for his second postdoc in 2008. After this he moved to the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway while also being a Corresponding Fellow at Nordita.
Yasser's research interest lies at the interface of statistical physics and biology. His recent work involves the use of spin glass physics to build statistical inference methods and infer network connectivity from high-throughput data. In recent years these methods have proven very useful in analyzing data from multi-electrode neural recordings and micro-array gene expression data.
