I'm a student intern at the Dura-Bernal lab. I'm developing an existing computational model of the area CA1 of the hippocampus (Cutsuridis et al.) to study encoding and retrieval of spatiotemporal input patterns. The aim is to research how the performance of the network is affected by altering its physiological structure to emulate neuropsychiatric diseases such as depression.

I'm currently carrying out a PhD at the University of Hertfordshire in Computer Science.

In 2021 I graduated from the University of Genoa (Italy) in MS Bioengineering with neuroengineering curriculum. For my thesis project, I carried out a traineeship in the University of the Balearic Islands (Spain) developing a model of the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex to study their connectivity and how they communicate. 

In 2019 I graduated from the University of Padua (Italy) in Bsc Biomedical engineering.
