PROFILE
Mind over matter: Her interest in the brain led her to computer science
"Your brain can store all of your experiences at some level. It doesn't store every detail," explains Emory computer scientist Avani Wildani. "If we can get a better idea of how information storage and reductionism work in the brain, perhaps we could translate that to a computer framework."
