Nicolas Brunel

Eva Löcherbach

Eva Löcherbach is professor of mathematics at the Laboratoire SAMM of the university Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne. She is working on probability theory with particular interest in limit theorems for Markov processes, the control of speed of convergence to equilibrium, interacting particle systems with interactions and/or memory of variable length and statistics of stochastic processes. In recent years she got interested in probabilistic models in neurosciences. Her research interests are mainly focused on the study of huge or infinite systems of interacting point processes with memory of variable or infinite length describing the spiking behavior of neurons. For such systems, she proved existence and perfect simulation results, she studied mean-field limits and the long time behavior of the associated non-linear limit systems, including the emergence of self-sustained oscillatory behavior, as well as important statistical issues such as estimation of the spiking rate or estimation of the underlying interaction graph.
