Matt Gaidica, PhD

Director, Neurotech Hub; Assistant Professor of Neuroscience

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

I direct the Neurotech Hub within the Department of Neuroscience—we aim to accelerate progress in neuroscience by providing cutting-edge technical services on demand, and seeking, testing, and deploying paradigm-shifting or bespoke technologies. In conjunction with my directorship, I leverage the Neurotech Hub resources to continue my research into new and novel devices to record animal behavior and physiology. Specifically, I am interested in pairing proximity tracing between individuals with measures of movement or neural recordings to understand how social behavior and ecosystem dynamics interact with the brain.
