Chief Scientist

Brian A. Wandell is the first Isaac and Madeline Stein Family Professor. He joined the Stanford Psychology faculty in 1979 and is a member, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering and Ophthalmology. He is Director of Stanford’s Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging (CNI), and Deputy Director of Stanford’s Wu Tsai Neuroscience Institute. Wandell’s research centers on vision science, spanning topics from visual disorders, reading development in children, to digital imaging devices and algorithms for both magnetic resonance imaging and digital imaging. Building on software developed at the CNI, Wandell co-founded Flywheel Exchange, LLC to help support reproducible research methods outside of Stanford. He remains actively engaged in Flywheel’s activities, and Wandell’s team at Stanford continues to extend the range of reproducible research applications, using the tools for various neuroscience applications and large-scale computer graphics simulations for artificial intelligence in advanced driving assistance systems.
