I completed an undergraduate masters in Physics at the University of Exeter. I got PhD in Computer Science on the theoretical aspects of spiking neural networks in 2016. Currently I am working at the Department as a research fellow, on the European project SPIKEFRAME: A framework for learning rules in networks of spiking neural networks, under the supervision of Dr André Grüning who was my former PhD supervisor as well.
