I joined Janelia in the fall of 2014 to study the dynamics of cortical circuits. 

My experience in the field of computational neuroscience started at the University of Rome La Sapienza. Under the supervision of Daniel Amit, covering the end of my Laurea studies and most of the PhD period, I witnessed unsupervised recurrent neural networks learn discrete sets of stimuli.

I was a postdoc with Misha Tsodyks at the Weizmann Institute of Science and at the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience. There I mingled attractor networks and short-term synaptic plasticity, which resulted in cue-less retrieval of information from memory and the dynamics of spatial coding in hippocampus-like circuits.
