Krasnow Institute PhD alumni wins ATT hackathon in Vegas!

Ruggero Scorcioni is one of our neuroscience PhD alumni. We’re proud of him for other reasons, but here’s his latest brilliant success: he’s the winner of the AT&T hacakthon in Vegas! The story is here. Money quote:

At 41, he has had plenty of time to research brain wave science as well as write computer programs. After receiving a degree in computer science in his native Italy, Scorcioni came to the U.S. 12 years ago to earn a PhD from George Mason University in Virginia in neuroscience.

Kudos to Ruggero and his thesis advisor Giorgio Ascoli!
