With more than 250 publications, Dr. Hervé Abdi focuses his work around three areas: psychology of memory, neural networks, and statistics. His psychology of memory research is mainly directed toward the modeling of long-term semantic memory for faces and non-verbal material such as odors and tastes. The neural networks research is directed at finding a generalization of auto-associative networks and to the analysis of the statistical properties of connectionist models. Dr. Abdi’s statistical work is oriented towards the analysis of very large, complex and multi-modal data sets such as found in brain imaging and genetic studies. Dr. Abdi was a Fulbright scholar and a visiting associate professor of cognitive and linguistic sciences at Brown University, a resident of the “Paris Institute of Advanced Studies” and also has served as a visiting professor at universities in Switzerland, Japan, France and Canada. He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Franche-Comté in France, his two master’s degrees from the Universities of Clermond-Ferrand and Strasbourg in France, and his PhD from the University of Aix-en-Provence in France.
