How can we best extract and understand signals from the brain? Finding how to address a question is as important as finding what question to ask. 
My research focuses on implementing and developing new methods in support of the scientific research programs carried out at the SISSA, with a particular focus on investigating data science methods for understanding large, heterogeneous datasets. To this end, I utilize the experience I have gained with several neuroimaging methods (e.g., EEG and fMRI including ASL and MRS) as well as different data analyses techniques (e.g., from classical statistics to machine learning). 

As a key part of my role, I also assist the Cognitive Neuroscience group with experimental design and data analysis, teach programming to Masters and Ph.D. students, and manage the human laboratories across the Cognitive Neuroscience sector
