About Me

I am currently employed as a New Technologies Project Manager working on Research and Development on Technology and Innovation within the Guala Closures Group. I lead a team of four Research & Development Engineers. My work includes the following tasks:

Previously I completed a PhD in Computational Neuroscience with the Neurosys Team at INRIA Nancy and LORIA. My work focused on modelling the memory system under general anaesthesia using biologically-inspired spiking neural networks and physiological recordings of neural activity.

I have always been fascinated by memory, from both a neurological as well as a philosophical stand point. The encoding of, and the ability to retrieve perceived past experiences are both innate and familiar human behaviours. Indeed this familiarity derives from our every-day use of our mnemonic functions as we imagine, perceive, and experience life. However, the interior workings of the brain which provide us with such faculties are far from being fully unravelled. Intrigued by this challenge ultimately my objective is to orient my research towards practical medical and rehabilitative applications.
