MArk Hollenbeck

SCIENTIFIC SOFTWARE ENGINEER

Mark is an engineer with a passion for scientific exploration and the human brain. He believes the next evolution in neuroscientific research will be highly computational in nature, involving multimodal data integration and machine-learning at scale.

Mark has worked in cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging research laboratories for the past 6 years, focusing his efforts on human memory, language, and attention. Most recently, he applied machine-learning techniques to fMRI data to explore the functional mechanisms underlying memory formation and forgetting. Before that, he helped research neurodegenerative diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and Houston Methodist Hospital. He has also been active in artificial intelligence research and has co-developed approaches to artificial neural network knowledge transfer in the domain of reinforcement learning. Mark received his M.S. in Computer Science from University of Texas at Austin and his B.S. in Computer Engineering from Northeastern University.
