Research Fellow


Gonzalo Daniel Maso Talou is a post-doctoral research fellow in Auckland Bioengineering Institute and is currently part of the Virtual Brain Group and the Laboratory for Animate Technologies. He completed his undergraduate studies in Software Engineering at the National University of the Central Buenos Aires in 2010 and his MSc in Scientific Computing and PhD in Computational Modelling at the National Laboratory for Scientific Computing in 2013 and 2017, respectively. In 2015, he received the Prêmio Bolsa Nota 10 scholarship from FAPERJ foundation in recognition to the highest GPA and academic production during the PhD program. 

His current research covers topics of computational modelling, machine learning and image processing for different biological systems. His main research interest is around neurovascular models, high-performance computational models and image processing driven by machine learning.
