I am a PhD student at the Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School. I grew up in Bournemouth (UK) and moved to Geneva when I was 8 years old. After finishing school there, I enrolled at EPFL and eventually obtained a BSc in Life Sciences and an MSc in Computational Neurosciences.Throughout my studies, I have had the opportunity to participate in multiple projects that encouraged me to pursue an academic career related to Neurosciences. During my Masters Thesis in Tübingen, for example, my goal was to create a Neural Network that could predict the activity of a muscle based only on EEG signals. This allowed me to identify which brain areas were responsible for the activity of a specific hand muscle in stroke patients.
I am currently pursuing my PhD at the Microstructure Mapping Lab of the Department of Radiology of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV). The aim of my work is to develop a simulation framework for Iso-dFMRI. This should help predict and explain the apparent diffusion coefficient changes resulting from dynamic microstructure fluctuations underlying neuronal activity and relate them to healthy and pathological conditions.
