Dr. Erik Hoel

Research Assistant Professor, Biology
Tufts University

Erik uses information theory and causal analysis to explore the biological basis of consciousness and understand the nature of emergence. Part of this research is on how complexity and information theory can be used to track or measure the neural difference between consciousness and unconsciousness, using data from cutting-edge neuroscientific methodologies. A second aspect of his research is to understand how causal structure changes across scale, and how information theory metrics can capture and quantify the emergence of macroscale causal structure.

Our Students Speak

Hello everyone! I’m Samarth Kulkarni. Recently, I had the great privilege of being able to work on a project with Dr. Bruce Campbell of Brown University. Over the course of our mentorship, we worked to create a “BCI”, which is a system that detects and interprets brain waves so that they can be used to procure a response from the computer. By the end of our mentorship, we had managed to extract and interpret data, as well as build a preliminary ML model to perform all these steps automatically. The whole experience was an amazing one, and really helped me with a whole host of skills, from coding to expressing my thoughts clearly.

International Internship Program is a very unique and intellectually cultivating program. The opportunity to interact with professors from the top universities in the world and actually work under them comes once in a lifetime and should not be passed. I personally worked under an MIT professor and those 8 weeks have been stupendous. He taught me concepts with ease and gave me simple yet intriguing assignments which would encourage me to dive deeper and explore the concepts. Not only did I get to make a project under him, but also got a major edge over others by illustrating my competence and experience through his letter of recommendation. Manya is doing an excellent job with the mentorship. I was extremely satisfied with every feature of the program and do not hesitate to recommend it to other aspirants.

International Internship Program provided me the opportunity of working with an international professor and performing research without the hassle of physically moving to that location. The program helps you connect to a few of the brilliant minds that are a part of prestigious universities abroad. If you can afford it I would most definitely recommend this internship.

I am a final year undergrad pursuing Robotics and Automation in PSG College of Technology and I ‘ve got acceptance letter from NEU and UMCP for pursuing MS in US. Luckily, I found about this program when I was applying for MS using Manya services. This Manya international internship program is one of a kind, it connects students directly with the professors from top-notch universities. And based on the interest of the students they provide a few options from which we can choose whatever we find comfortable. This program will be greatly useful for those who intend to add extra value to their resume and to get exposure, students can learn a lot apart from their academics with the help of these professors. And I think an international internship will highly increase the weightage of the extra-curricular section of my resume and consequently, it’ll help me with my higher education.

Furthermore, a LOR from such kind of professors is highly valuable and these are the sort of things that the University admission committee looks for, the things that set our profile apart from others and I was fortunate enough to get one from my mentor. I did my internship under Dr Peter Kempthorne from MIT on the topic Using R studio for statistical analysis. As an engineering student who studied probability for just 4 months, it was a topic on which I am not an expert. I told Dr Kempthorne about my previous experience with programming and probability and I’d say he taught me in the best possible way. The schedules were highly flexible, and the program coordinators made this whole journey fruitful. Overall, I’d say it was a good learning experience and I enjoyed every bit of it. Though it is not cheap, this program is worth every penny spent. I just wish I had done this in my pre-final year.
