Hello World!

I’m a neuroengineer enthusiastic about neuroscience, computer vision, machine learning and open-source softwares. My general research interests include associate artificial intelligence with neural data processing. Check out some of the projects I’ve been working on or follow me on twitter!

What am I up to?

I’m doing my doctorate under the supervision of Gabrielle Girardeau (Girardeau Lab) and I’m part of the PhD program of the Initiative for interdisciplinary research in Biology (i-Bio) of Sorbonne University.

Before start the PhD I did rotations in three different laboratories at the Institut de Biologie Paris-Seine (IBPS) and the Institut du Fer à Moulin (IFM) at the Sorbonne University:

  1. Project title “Leveraging machine learning and neural field modeling to understand the role of REM sleep in emotional memory consolidation and homeostasis”. Supervisors Gabrielle Girardeau (Girardeau Lab, IFM) & Wilten Nicola (Nicola Computational Neuroscience Lab, University of Calgary)
  2. Project title “Regulation of gene expression coupled to cell growth and division in bacterial adaption processes” Supervisors Bianca Sclavi (Laboratory of Computational and Quantitative Biology, IBPS) & Marco Cosentino Lagomarsino (Marco Cosentino Lagomarsino Lab, IFOM, University of Milan)
  3. Project title “Dissecting how excitable ependymal cells participate to locomotor rhythms using an all-optical approach” Supervisors Jean-Marie Mangin (Development of the spinal cord organization, IBPS) & Georges Debregeas (Laboratory Jean Perrin, IBPS)

Before PhD

I received my M.Sc. in Neuroengineering from the Edmond and Lily Safra International Institute of Neuroscience (IIN-ELS), where I worked with Dr. André Dantas and Dr. Abner Rodrigues developing a open-source system for measuring and analyzing data from inertial sensors, fully availabe in PyJAMA. Throughout my M.Sc. I became interested in research electrophysiological data and animal behavior, developing PyRAT, an open source python library to process tracking data. Also, after finishing my master’s degree, I received a technical support scholarship to work at IIN-ELS with Abner Rodrigues, using connectivity techniques to analyze electrophysiological data from rats during seizures.

Beyond the academy

I’m Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt. But, I’m currently running around Paris and will run the Marathon Nice-Cannes in 2024 and the Paris Marathon in 2025. I’m documenting this process in my OnlyRuns!
