Dr. Mario Negrello (MN)


Mario Negrello obtained a mechanical engineering degree in Brazil (1997), and after a period in the industry (1997-2004) obtained a Masters and a PhD degree (2009, summa cum laude) in Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrück in Germany. At the Fraunhofer Institute in Sankt Augustin (Germany) for Intelligent Dynamics and Autonomous Systems, Mario researched artificial evolution of neural network controllers for autonomous robots (2007/09), including a period as a visiting researcher at the Aerospace Engineering dept. at Cornell University (with Hod Lipson). His first postdoc was in the Computational Neuroscience laboratory at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (with Erik De Schutter) studying large scale computational models of the cerebellum. Currently he is assistant professor in the department of neuroscience in the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, where he combines empirical research and computational models (dept. head Chris De Zeeuw). Mario has published in the fields of Neuroscience, Computational Neuroscience, Cognitive Robotics, Evolutionary Robotics, Neuroethology, as well as a monograph published by Springer US in the Cognitive and Neural Systems series entitled Invariants of Behavior (2012).
