I received my Master's degree in Physics from the University of Pisa in 2010. I worked on the field of the foundations of quantum mechanics for the preparation of my degree thesis.
I obtained a Ph.D. title from the Biorobotics Institute of the Scuola Superiore S.Anna of Pisa in 2016. During my Ph.D. studies I worked on: Nonlinear Time Series Analysis of Neural Signals, Neural Dynamics and Post-Stroke Neurorehabilitation.
Currently, I am Post Doctoral Fellow at the Neural Coding lab under the supervision of Dr. Stefano Panzeri and Dr. Tommaso Fellin. My main interests are on the Analysis of Neural Signals, Dynamical Models of Neuronal Populations and Information Theory Methods.
