Bjørn Erik Juel, PhD

Postdoctoral Researcher


From a background in physics and neuroscience, I have transitioned into studying consciousness empirically and theoretically. Until recently, my main research focus was on developing, testing, and validating practically applicable and theoretically inspired EEG-based markers of consciousness. I continue this work with professor Storm and his group at the University of Oslo, while my work here at the CSC centers on theoretical development and dissemination of IIT.

Research Interests: consciousness, EEG, complexity.
