PhD Student, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences

Greta Tuckute is a PhD student in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT working with Dr. Ev Fedorenko. Tuckute works at the intersection of neuroscience, artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive science. Her research interests also include how language is processed in the biological brain, comparing representations learned by artificial systems and humans, and how we can leverage insights about the brain within the field of AI. Tuckute received an MS in Molecular Biomedicine from the University of Copenhagen & Technical University of Denmark, and a BS in Molecular Biomedicine from the University of Copenhagen. Greta will begin her fellowship in September 2022.

PhD Student, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics

Mycal Tucker is a PhD student in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT working with Dr. Julie Shah in the Interactive Robotics Group. Tucker focuses on explainability and interpretability of robotics and AI systems, or how can complex computer and robotic systems explain their policies and state to humans who have no special training. His research manifests itself as custom-built neural models, probes to understand the linguistic properties of NLP models, and representation learning for human understanding. Mycal will begin his fellowship in September 2022.
