Professor Izquierdo's main interest is in understanding how behavior arises from the interaction of the organism’s brain, its body, and its environment.

Research Interests: Computational neuroscience, evolutionary robotics, artificial life, and embodied cognition

Izquierdo moved to Indiana University in 2010 where he has focused on the analysis of behavior in brain-body-environment interactions by putting together models of different organisms' neural systems with models of their bodies.
