Fabrizio de Vico Fallani is INRIA Head of Research at the Paris Brain Spine Institute (ICM). Italian born native of Rome, he received his Masters in Computer Science Engineering at the Sapienza University in Rome (2005), and was awarded a Ph.D. in Biophysics three years later at the same University. 

He currently leads the multidisciplinary NERV lab working on the analysis and modeling of brain functioning from a system perspective. Theoretical developments are in the field of network theory and signal processing adapted to neuroimaging data. Applications range from the study of brain diseases (eg, stroke, Alzheimer) to the development of brain-computer interfaces. 

In 2020 he was awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant by the European community. In 2018 he received the "Young investigator" award by the Complex Systems Society (CSS). In 2012 he received the "Young researcher" award and in 2009 the prize for the "best PhD thesis" by the National Group of Bioengineering (GNB).
