Hello! I am a neuroscientist and group leader at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
The research of my lab is generally focused on the neurobiology of memory, particularly the computational role of the hippocampus and associated structures in memory formation. My work combines high-density recording of neural activity with virtual reality to study these circuits in behaving mice. We study the connections between these observations and implementations of efficient memory encoding strategies in artificial neural networks.
Previously, I worked at the Zuckerman Institute and Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at Columbia University, where I completed my PhD in the laboratories of the Attila Losonczy and Stefano Fusi. My earlier work was with Nick Robinson and Howard Eichenbaum at Boston University.
