Together with his co-author Sai Gaddam, Dr. Ogi Ogas analyzed a billion web searches, a million Web sites, a million erotic videos, a million erotic stories, millions of personal ads, tens of thousands of digitized romance novels, and much more. The results? Stunning data on the nature of desire and fantasy, gathered together in the amazing book A Billion Wicked Thoughts.
Ogi Ogas received his Ph.D. in computational neuroscience from Boston University, where he designed mathematical models of learning, memory, and vision. Ogi was also a Department of Homeland Security Fellow and conducted biodefense research at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
He used cognitive techniques from his brain research to win half a million dollars on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
