Something about me…

I have bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biomedical engineering. Subsequently, I joined the neurocomputation lab where I analyzed the functional connectivity of EEG data of patients suffering from neuropathic pain and spinal cord injury. Apart from that, I was also involved in studies that aimed at investigating the effects of non-pharmacological treatment (transcranial direct current stimulation) on behavioral, psychometric, and electrophysiological responses. This experience allowed me to develop a broad variety of technical skills in signal processing and EEG data analysis, as well as in the brain computational tools SIFT and LORETA.
After gaining basic knowledge and skills, I felt a dire need to go deeper into the scientific world to explore more about brain dynamics. Thus, I opted to pursue a Ph.D. in a related field under the supervision of Prof. Monica Puligheddu and Prof. Danilo Pani. This Ph.D. project interests me since it is relevant to my research area, which is behavioral studies (Rapid Eye Movement sleep behavioral disorder).
