Jonathan Wirsich holds a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Aix-Marseille University and a M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. His research is focused on information integration and fusion of multimodal imaging such as concurrent EEG-fMRI and diffusion MRI to better understand the dynamic and static properties of whole brain networks in healthy and clinical populations (epilepsy, stroke). Jonathan joined the CONNECT Lab in winter 2016.
