postdoctoral researcher in Geneva, Svizzera
Since my college years as a physics student I developed a great passion for neuroscience and machine learning. It was such deep fascination with the quest to understand how the brain works that led me to earn a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at SISSA, in Trieste.
At SISSA I spent 5 years in Davide Zoccolan's visual neuroscience laboratory studying shape and motion processing in the rat visual cortex. In order to do so I combined in-vivo extracellular electrophysiology, behavior and computational modelling .
Currently I'm starting my postdoc in Sami El-Boustani's Lab in Geneva working on context-dependent visuotactile decision making in mice.
My long-term career goal is to contribute to research at the interplay between systems neuroscience and artificial intelligence, combining behavior, large-scale population recordings and imaging with computational approaches.
