Dr. Sennay Ghebreab
I studied Information Systems at the University of Amsterdam and received a PhD from the same University in 2002 in medical image analysis and retrieval.
Part of the research was carried out at Yale School of Medicine (New Haven, CT, USA). Subsequently, I worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Erasmus MC, University Medical Center (Rotterdam, The Netherlands), where my research interest gradually shifted from medical imaging to cognitive vision in psychology.
In 2005, I returned to the University of Amsterdam where I am currently working as an assistant professor at the Intelligent Systems Lab Amsterdam (Faculty of Science) and Cognitive Neuroscience Group Amsterdam (Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences) in the interdisciplinary field of brain, cognition and information processing.
I coordinate and teach the introductory course on Information, Communication and Cognition at Amsterdam University College (AUC). I also lead the Brain & Technology Amsterdam lab (BeTA lab).
