My name is Muna Elmi, I have a Research Associate position at UCL Computer Science department. My background is PhD in Neuroscience from Gothenburg University in Sweden. For my PhD thesis I was working on understanding signaling pathways that affect the differentiation of adult neural stem cells. However, currently I’m working in an inter-disciplinary research group investigating the mechanism of touch sensation and creating computer simulations that can predict the mechanical properties of tactile stimulation. In the lab we combine biology with computer science and robotics.
