Bio:

received my MA in Experimental Psychology from the University of Trieste, Italy and my PhD from the Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems at Boston University, where I am currently a Postdoc and Assistant Director of the CNS Technology Lab. My research interests are focused on neural networks - in particular applied to cortical models of learning and memory. I am also involved in the development and testing of a software package for advanced neurosimulations, KInNeSS. Most of my activity is carried out at CNS at Boston University
