Larissa Albantakis

Larissa Albantakis is an Assistant Professor of Computational Psychiatry at the Wisconsin Institute for Sleep and Consciousness, University of Wisconsin—Madison.

She obtained her Diploma in Physics from Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich in 2007, and her PhD in Computational Neuroscience from Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona in 2011 under the supervision of Gustavo Deco. She has been at the University of Wisconsin since 2012, where she worked together with Giulio Tononi on Integrated Information Theory, as well as a principled account of causation and causal autonomy. In 2022, she started her own research group aimed at developing novel computational tools to analyze and model the origins, symptoms, and potential for interventions of mental disorders in a causal, mechanistic manner at the individual and group level.
