I recently finished my PhD with Sidney Wiener as advisor, within a collaboration with Thérèse Jay’s lab at Sainte-Anne hospital. I am currently wrapping up my PhD work before leaving for postdoc research.
I am ultimately interested in the dynamics allowing the exchange of information between brain areas, namely how the information encoded in one neural structure is able to modulate the encoding in another area (and the other way around), and how these interactions orchestrate perception, learning, and behavior. To do so, my primary experimental approach is to perform high-density recordings simultaneously in multiple brain sites of freely behaving rats and then use data mining and analysis to study neural populations activity.
Born and bred in Rome, I studied undergraduate biology at Università di Pisa and Université Paris-Saclay. I then pursued with master studies in neuroscience at École Normale Supérieure, Sorbonne Université, and University College London.
During my undergraduate I received extremely valuable training in Kate Jeffery lab at UCL. After a tour of different neuroscience research fields, I finally decided to come back to study systems/behavioral neuroscience in rodents, and joined for my PhD the labs of Sidney Wiener and Michaël Zugaro at the Collège de France, and of Thérèse Jay and Marie-Odile Krebs at the Hôpital Sainte-Anne.
