I am the Chief Scientific Officer of the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle in the Pacific Northwest. From 1986 until 2013, I was a Professor of Biology and Engineering at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena in Southern California. I think a lot about the universe and how it came to be, about the brain, how it produces consciousness and how the sentient mind emerges from the physical brain.
