From 2008, I have a post doc position at the Neuroengineering and Bio-nano Technology Group (NBT) of the Department of Biophysical and Electronic Engineering (DIBE) of the University of Genova (Italy).
I was trained as a Biomedical Engineer, and I received my 5 years laurea-degree cum laude from the University of Genova in 2004. In 2008 I obtained my PhD in Bioengineering and Bioelectronics with a thesis entitled “In vitro neuronal networks: computational models and synaptic plasticity studies”.
During these years, I developed a strong interest in the field of the Neuroscience and Neuroengineering. In particular, by means of a theoretical and experimental approach, I performed studies about the dynamics exhibited by in vitro cortical networks coupled to Micro-Electrode Arrays (MEAs), and synaptic plasticity at network level.
In this field, I regularly taught lessons and seminars of Bioelectronics and Neuroengineering and Computational Neuroscience for the students of Biomedical Engineering of the University of Genova (Italy).
