Elizabeth B. Torres, PhD
Chief Marketing Officer
Dr. Torres is a Computational Neuroscientist who has been working on theoretical and empirical aspects of sensory motor integration and human cognition since the late 90’s. She graduated from Mathematics and Computer Science and before joining the UCSD PhD program, she spent a year at the National Institute of Aging, NIH as a Pre-IRTA fellow, applying her skill set to the development of computational models of cognition for use in the field of geriatrics. Under the NIH-Pre-doctoral-fellowship, she completed graduate work with a focus on Applied mathematics to Neuro-Motor Control models in the field of Cognitive Science. She moved to CALTECH for postdoctoral training in electrophysiology and Computational Neural Systems, where she was a Sloan-Swartz Fellow, a Della Martin Fellow and a Neuroscience Scholar.
She joined the Rutgers Psychology faculty, the Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science and the Center for Computational Biomedicine Imaging and Modelling of the Computer Science Dept. in 2008. There she initiated the path of interdisciplinary collaboration and attained tenure. Since 2009, her lab has brought to Rutgers over 8 Million research dollars from Federal, State and Private funds and multiple patents in the areas of digital biomarkers with applications to personalized mobile-smart Health. She has written two books on autism and biometrics, and currently serves as the Principal Investigator and Director of the New Jersey Autism Center of Excellence leading major initiatives to help transform autism medical research and treatments across the state.
