Kristin Branson develops machine vision and learning algorithms designed to extract scientific understanding from imaging and video data sets resulting from large-scale, neurological studies of behaving animals. Branson and her team use these high-throughput tools to address previously unanswerable questions about the brain and behavior, thereby gaining insight into nervous system function, evolution, and ethology. Their goal is to develop robust, general-purpose implementations of these algorithms that are freely available for widespread use by biologists worldwide.
