UChicago CNS graduate named to Crain's Chicago 40 Under 40 2016

Maryam Saleh, PhD

Maryam Saleh (PhD'11) originally thought she might go into special effects at a place like Pixar after studying computer engineering as an undergraduate at Brown University. Instead, she became interested in neuroscience on the recommendation of an advisor. She began working at a brain implant start-up and enrolled in the Computational Neuroscience PhD program at the University of Chicago, where she worked in Nicho Hatsopoulos's lab. 

Now, Saleh has been named one of Crain's Chicago Business's 40 Under 40 for her work at Matter, where she is the vice president of programs. She describes computational neuroscience as "basically Big Data for the brain."
