Michale Fee studies the neural mechanisms of sequence generation and learning. He is faculty in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and an Investigator in the McGovern Institute for Brain Research. He received a B.E. with honors in Engineering Physics from the School of Engineering at the University of Michigan and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford University. After spending time at Bell Labs as a postdoctoral scholar and then as a permanent researcher, he joined the faculty of the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT as Associate Professor of Neuroscience with tenure. At the same time, he was appointed as an investigator in the McGovern Institute for Brain Research. He has delivered lectures in numerous international conferences and research departments. He was promoted to Full Professor at MIT in 2010. His laboratory studies how songbirds generate and learn complex vocal sequences. For further information click here.
