I am a passionate researcher in the field of computational neuroscience with a focus on the study of neurodegenerative diseases. My dedication to this field stems from my belief that through a deeper understanding of these illnesses, we can unlock new and innovative ways to treat and prevent them. I have dedicated a significant portion of my research efforts to Parkinson’s disease, in the hope of contributing to the advancement of knowledge in this area.
I am proud of beeing part of the AI4Life project, whose aim is to develop cutting-edge technology and apply deep-learning to health science relevant challenges. My work on this project has allowed me to bring the benefits of artificial intelligence to the analysis and understanding of biomedical images, making it more accessible and user-friendly for all, using ImageJ as a framework for the newly created plugins.
In addition to my work on computational neuroscience and on AI4Life, I have also been researching on the application of neural network models to diagnose rare blood diseases, creating a succesful method based on CNNs and hand-crafted fourier features addition.
It is my ultimate goal to make a positive impact on the world through my work. I believe in the important role of science in our society and I want to inspire future generations of scientists and technologists to use their skills and knowledge for the greater good.
