Felix Z. Hoffmann

PhD student in computational neuroscience. Open Scientist.

Since 2015, I am part of the IMPRS for Neural Circuits and have joined the group of Jochen Triesch at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies. Before, I studied physics and mathematics at University Freiburg.


I study theoretical and computational models of local cortical circuits. I'm specifically interested in the non-random connectivity structures that emerge in these networks. I recently published an article on this topic.

Open Science

I'm a 2017 Wikimedia Open Science Fellow and update on my progress on GitHub. Previously, I worked on a Google Summer of Code project implementing data-centric views to Sumatra and gave a short talk at OpenCon how tools like Sumatra can help promote Open Data.
