Patryk Laurent, Ph.D.



In my day-to-day, I work with data scientists and software engineers at DMGT's held companies to maximize value and adopt cutting edge technologies. I write code nearly every day, to evaluate technology, build prototypes, and contribute to products.

I hold a bachelor's degree in the Cognitive Sciences (Mathmetics minor) from the University of Virginia, and earned my Ph.D. in Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh, with affiliations at the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition and the Learning Research and Development Center. I spent three years at The Johns Hopkins University doing post-doctoral research on reward-based learning.

In industry, my prior work includes applying a diverse range of machine learning methods to create novel user interfaces and robot/IoT systems based on computer vision and speech recognition. I have published articles on reinforcement learning, neural networks, and human experimental research.
