Personal profile


I did my PhD in neuroanatomy in the team of Dr Henry Kennedy and Dr Kenneth Knoblauch at Stem-cell and Brain Research Institute (Inserm U1208, Lyon, France), and then a two-year postdoc. During this period, I conducted research in collaboration with Prof Andreas Burkhalter (Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO, USA), with whom we investigated the connectome of the mouse cortex at mesoscale level. I also developed computational skills to analyse and compare the data in rodents and primates and to deal with large volumes of data through the development of neuroinformatics pipelines.

Since October 2019 I am working as an Early Career Research Fellow at Monash University in the group led by Prof Marcello Rosa. In the current project I aim to characterise, at cellular and circuit levels, how the claustrum interacts with different networks of the cerebral cortex, using a combination of anatomical and physiological techniques, together with mathematical analysis and computer simulations.
