Alex Huth's research is focused on how the many different areas in the human brain work together to perform complex tasks such as understanding natural language. Alex uses and develops computational methods in Machine Learning and Bayesian Statistics, and obtain fMRI measures of brain responses from subjects while they do real-life tasks, such as listening to a story, to better understand how the brain functions.
Alex earned his PhD in Dr. Jack Gallant's laboratory through the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at UC Berkeley. Before that, Alex earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees in computation and neural systems (CNS) at Caltech, where he worked with Dr. Christof Koch and Dr. Melissa Saenz. He received the Burroughs Wellcome Career Award in 2016.
