Pablo Martinez-Cañada graduated in Telecommunications (1st class) at the University of Granada (Spain) in 2011. He completed two different master's degrees: MSc in Computer Engineering and Networking at the University of Granada in 2012 and Erasmus Mundus MSc in Color in Informatics and Media Technology (CIMET) at the Universities Jean Monnet (France), Gjøvik (Norway), Eastern-Finland (Finland) and Granada. From 2014 to 2018, as a PhD student at the University of Granada, his investigation focused on Computational Neuroscience of Vision. The questions that he set out to answer were: (i) to understand functionality of the visual system, (ii) which are the neural mechanisms underlying visual functions and, ultimately, (iii) how perception arises from these lower level mechanisms. He is currently a postdoctoral associate at the Neural Computation Laboratory of the IIT.
