PhD Candidate

Habelschwerdter Allee 45
14195 Berlin

I have a Bachelor in Philosophy and a Master in Cognitive Neuroscience from CIMeC (Center for Mind/Brain Sciences), Trento. During my Bachelor I studied a semester abroad in Krakow and during my Master I had a one year internship in Berlin.

My research is focused on visual object categorization. I mostly work with EEG data, using multivariate decoding and machine learning. My main project consists in creating an EEG encoding model, which can predict the EEG typical responses to visual objects. For this, I use neural networks and other machine learning techniques.
