I am mostly interested in understanding the collective dynamics of large neuronal networks by using concepts and tools from statistical physics. I am currently focusing on structural synaptic plasticity and its impact on network’s storage capacity.
I have received the M.Sc. degree in Physics (in 2000) and the Ph.D. degree in Neurophysiology (in 2005) from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Rome, Italy. I have been postdoctoral fellow at the GATSBY Unit (UCL, London, UK), at the École Normale Supérieure (Paris, France), at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Jerusalem, Israel) and at the École de Neurosciences de Paris Île-de-France (Paris, France). Since 2009, I am research scientist with the CNRS.
Keywords: mean-field theory, balanced networks, learning & memory, synaptic plasticity, models of working memory.
