Dr Adrian Williams
Senior Lecturer


I was originally trained in the areas of statistics and computing before developing an interest in machine learning and artificial neural networks. From there, I moved to real neural networks, and completed my PhD in Neuroscience at the Institute of Ophthalmology, University College London. After a period of nearly five years as a postdoc at the Psychology Department at Royal Holloway, University of London, I joined the Centre for Cognition and Neuroimaging at Brunel University London as a lecturer.
