He is also an Honorary Senior Fellow at the Melbourne Medical School, The University of Melbourne.

A/Prof Perucca received his MD and specialist-in-neurology degrees from the University of Pavia, Italy. He undertook higher training in epilepsy at Columbia University, USA; the Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University, Canada; and The Royal Melbourne Hospital. He obtained his PhD from The University of Melbourne, with a thesis focused on the role of genetic factors in the aetiology of focal epilepsies and in the outcomes of epilepsy therapy.

His main research interests include epilepsy genetics, electroencephalography, the pharmacological and surgical treatment of epilepsy, and genomic and electrophysiological biomarkers of epilepsy outcomes.
