Ole Jensen received his MSc degree in Electrical engineering in 1993 from the Technical University of Denmark. He pursued his doctoral research at Brandeis University in the United States under the supervision of Professor John E. Lisman. In 1998 he obtained his Ph.D degree in neuroscience specializing in computational modelling of oscillatory networks. As a postdoctoral fellow, he applied magnetoencephalography (MEG) to address questions on brain dynamics and human cognition at the Brain Research Unit, Low Temperature Laboratory, Helsinki University of Technology. In 2002 he was employed as head of the MEG laboratory at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior. He was appointed professor in 2013 at the Faculty of Science, Radboud University Nijmegen and the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In 2016 he started a new position as professor in translational neuroscience at the University of Birmingham where he is co-director of the Centre for Human Brain Health. Jensen's work focuses on linking oscillatory brain activity to cognition using a combination of methodological approaches. For this work, he received The Joseph Chamberlain Award for Academic Advancement at the University of Birmingham (2018). He is in the top 1% for citations in Neuroscience & Behavioural Science/Cross-Field.
