Research interests

After obtaining my Bachelor and Master degrees working on Signal Processing, Computer Vision and Machine Learning, since the second year of my PhD I became more and more interested in neuroscience, thanks to multiple collaborations with different Brain centres (Maastricht and Tel Aviv). Wandering across Cognitive Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence (specifically deep learning), I am interested to address the goal to understand the brain activities in relation with movie stimulus applying recent advances in machine learning. I joined prof. Lars Muckli’s lab since May 2017, as postdoctoral researcher, to extend my studies also to high-field fMRI and non-feedforward sources location in primary visual cortex.
