Dr. Sean Hill is a senior scientist in the VP Research Group and the scientific director of the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, Canada. Dr. Hill is also a professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Physiology at the University of Toronto. Additionally, he is a titular professor at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland.
Under Dr. Hill’s leadership, the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics applies state-of-the-art data science, machine learning, and multi-scale computational modeling to accelerate the diagnosis, prediction, and treatment of brain disorders.
After completing his PhD in computational neuroscience at the Université de Lausanne, Dr. Hill held postdoctoral positions at The Neurosciences Institute in La Jolla, California, and the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
Areas of Research
Dr. Hill has extensive experience in large-scale data integration and building and simulating biophysically detailed models of brain circuitry. His research explores the principles underlying the structure and dynamics of neocortical and thalamocortical microcircuitry across sleep and wakefulness in health and disease.
