Founders

Meet the original founders of Open Neuromorphic. Our team ensures the thriving community of neuromorphic computing, digital hardware, and AI enthusiasts.

Fabrizio Ottati

Fabrizio Ottati

Fabrizio Ottati completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Electronics and Communications of Politecnico di Torino, under the supervision of professor Luciano Lavagno. He is now an AI/ML Processor Engineer at NXP.

His main interests are event-based cameras, digital hardware design and automation, deep learning and piedmontese red wine.

He is the maintainer of two open source projects in the field of neuromorphic computing, Tonic and Expelliarmus .

Gregor Lenz

Gregor Lenz

Gregor Lenz graduated with a Ph.D. in neuromorphic engineering from Sorbonne University. He thinks that technology can learn a thing or two from how biological systems process information.

His main interests are event cameras that are inspired by the human retina and spiking neural networks that mimic human brain in an effort to teach machines to compute a bit more like humans do. At the very least there are some power efficiency gains to be made, but hopefully more! Also he loves to build open source software for spike-based machine learning.

He is the maintainer of two open source projects in the field of neuromorphic computing, Tonic and expelliarmus .

Jason Eshraghian

Jason Eshraghian

Jason Eshraghian is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Santa Cruz, leading the UCSC Neuromorphic Computing Group .

His research focuses on brain-inspired circuit design to accelerate AI algorithms and spiking neural networks.

He is the maintainer of snnTorch .
