Publications Bio Blog CV

Intro

My name is Wilka Torrico De Carvalho and I am an Afro-Latino, socially sensitive, aspiring brain scientist. I am interested in exploring fields such as Bayesian Inference and Reinforcement Learning to uncover the learning and inference algorithms employed by the brain. To learn more, please read my research statement. If you are interested in how my interests developed, please read my personal statement.

Outreach

If you are a young scholar looking for advice on pursuing research or applying for fellowships, please feel free to reach out to me for advice! Likewise for advice exploring the fields of machine learning, computational cognitive science, or computational neuroscience (or any intersection). This is especially true for those that come from marginalized groups--especially those that are Black and Hispanic!
