2005-2009: I did my PhD at the University of Melbourne (Australia) under the supervision of Tony Burkitt, David Grayden, Doreen Thomas and Konstantin Borovkov. I worked on a mathematical analysis network dynamics for spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP).
2009-2012: I followed with a post-doc at Riken in Tokyo (Japan) in Tomoki Fukai's lab, where I moved toward functional implications of STDP.
2013: I took a break to learn how to sail in the Atlantic, Pacific and Antarctic Oceans.
2014-2020: I joined Gustavo Deco's lab (Barcelona, Spain) as a post-doc within the Human Brain Project, with a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action fellowship for 2 years. My focus has shifted to the interpretation of neuroimaging data (especially fMRI), but still with a network-oriented perspective.
2020-now: I joined Moritz Helias' lab at INM-6 in Jülich Forschungszentrum (Germany). I will pursue the development of the theory presented in our paper about the covariance perceptron.
