Gülce Küreli graduated from the MD-PhD dual degree program of Hacettepe University in 2020. Her PhD study focused on the contractile mechanism of retinal pericytes. She is now a postdoctoral fellow working on long-term follow-up and management of microcirculatory disturbance in stroke models at BOAS lab.
Samuel Montero, Ph.D
Instituto Nacional de Astrofisica, Optica y Electronica, Mexico, Ph.D. in Computer Science
Samuel Montero is a Postdoctoral Fellow working on the development of algorithms and methods for the analysis of brain connectivity and signal quality in fNIRS. During his first postdoctoral training, Samuel designed techniques for examining functional brain activity in specific conditions using functional near-infrared spectroscopy. Samuel also has expertise in developing algorithms for causal discovery and machine learning (including neural networks and evolutionary algorithms for optimization). Currently, in the Bio Optical and Acoustic Spectroscopy Lab (BOAS), he is working on extracting connectivity networks from resting-state and attention-shifting fNIRS data.
