 Istvan Gyimes



A biologist by heart, a cognitive neuropsychologist by degree, and a data scientist by passion. My interests are focused around improving our data analysis methods in both academic and commercial research. The majority of my research focused on analysing behaviour and brain activity, mostly in relationship with the idea of mortality. However, recently I have been involved with a wider area of research where I can enjoy my passion for data organising, handing and analysis.
