SNSF Assistant Professor
Giulio obtained his PhD in cognitive neuroscience from SISSA in February 2020. During his PhD he worked with Davide Zoccolan (SISSA) studying shape and motion processing across the rat visual cortex by combining extracellular electrophysiology, behavior and computational modelling.
Anas received his Bachelor degree in Computer Sciences from Habib University, Pakistan. He then pursued a Master in Neurosciences through the Neurasmus Scholarship, studying at Vrije University Amsterdam and Université de Bordeaux. He is interested in explaining neural circuits of social games and their reward-value representations in the behaving brain.
Lucile obtained her Bachelor in Mathematics from University of Geneva in June 2020. She is currently doing a double Master in Mathematics and Neuroscience. She will focus on computational learning models.
Grihmalkin obtained their Bachelor in Biomedical Sciences from University of Fribourg in June 2021. They are currently starting a Master in Neuroscience and will focus on optogenetic manipulation of brain circuits involved in sensory perception and behaviour.
Andrea obtained her Bachelor in Biology from the Pontifical Xavierian University in Colombia. She then did an internship at UNAB (Chile) in Neuroepigenetics lab studying activity-dependent myelination. Currently she is doing a Master in Neuroscience Master project studying joint perceptual decision-making in mice.
Aude joined the laboratory in September 2021 to complete a two-year CFC training in laboratory techniques.
We are hiring!
We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to validate new visuo-tactile decision-making tasks and characterize goal-directed multisensory integration across layers in the mouse posterior parietal cortex using state-of-the-art functional and anatomical mapping techniques .
