He performed the work in the EPFL Blue Brain Project under the direction of Henry Markram and Eilif Muller. The prize is awarded annually by the Brain Mind Institute and the Doctoral Program in Neuroscience (EDNE) to the student who has produced the best PhD thesis and made the most outstanding contribution in the field of neuroscience.
