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, then got a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action fellowship in 2016. My focus was on macroscopic network modeling to analyze neuroimaging data (especially fMRI), with a focus on estimation in the context of effective connectivity.
2020-2021: I joined Moritz Helias' lab at INM-6 in Jülich Forschungszentrum (Germany). I pursued the development of the learning theory for microcircuits to explore neuronal representations and their processing in networks.
2022-now: I joined the group led by Olivier David within the DynaMap team at INS in Marseille (France) to work on models based on effective connectivity for stereotactic EEG data. Doing so, I aim to start developing models that bridge the microscopic and macroscopic scales.
