Logan Cross

Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Computer Science

Logan Cross is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Computer Science under the joint supervision of Prof. Dan Yamins and Prof. Nick Haber. His research combines interdisciplinary approaches to understand how intelligence emerges in humans and machines. Logan received his Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience at the University of Southern California. He completed his Ph.D in Computation and Neural Systems at the California Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Prof. John O’Doherty. In his doctoral studies, Logan used cutting-edge methods in neuroimaging and machine learning to study how the human brain makes decisions in high-dimensional naturalistic settings. At Stanford, he is exploring how the curiosity-driven learning that underpins human intelligence can be characterized in computational terms and built into artificial intelligence agents.
