Personal profile


Cian did a BSc in Applied Physics at Dublin City University, followed by an MSc and PhD in Neuroinformatics at University of Edinburgh where he studied biophysical models of electrical noise and synaptic plasticity in single neurons. He then worked for 3 years as a postdoc in the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California modelling synaptic plasticity in neural circuits, and analysing neural population activity data from mouse models of autism. In 2015 he became a lecturer at the University of Bristol and grew a research group that works on three topics: 1) learning and memory in the brain; 2) neural circuit dysfunction in autism; 3) statistical methods for neuroscience data. The group currently has 7 PhD students and 2 postdoctoral researchers. In October 2021 Cian moved to Ulster University at Magee, joining the ISRC as a lecturer in data analytics. Website here:
