I did my Ph.D. in medical imaging jointly at Technical University of Munich with Nassir Navab and at Imperial College London with Guang-Zhong Yang (2008-2012). My doctoral thesis focused on scene recognition in medical images using pattern recognition and machine learning methods. My interest in human vision and perception, developed during these studies, led me to redirect my research focus and I joined the Pearson Lab at University of New South Wales as postdoctoral fellow from 2012 to 2015. Currently, I am a postdoctoral Fellow with Beatriu de Pinòs Fellowship at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Center for Brain and Cognition, Computational Neuroscience Group researching on the structural and functional connectivity of the human brain and neural correlates of consciousness with Gustavo Deco in collaboration with Joel Pearson and Morten Kringelbach.
