Ryan Raut joined the Allen Institute as a Shanahan Foundation Fellow in the fall of 2021, after completing his PhD in neuroscience from Washington University in St. Louis. In his PhD work with Dr. Marcus Raichle, Ryan focused on identifying convergent spatiotemporal principles of brain state dynamics across multiple macroscopic recording modalities (fMRI, electrocorticography, widefield calcium imaging) and species (human, monkey, mouse). In collaboration with investigators at the Allen Institute and the University of Washington, Ryan is now leveraging computational and data-driven approaches to elucidate intrinsic rules governing the dynamics of neuronal populations, ultimately seeking to characterize such rules in mathematical, physiological, and behavioral terms.
