I was born in the USA but grew up in Rome, Italy where I gained an acute interest in psychology and human behavior. Through my first two years studying Psychology at the University of Edinburgh, my passion transformed from the theoretical toward the more tangible side of neurophysiology that dictates behavior. In the summer of 2019 I had the opportunity to intern beneath a PhD student at the University College of London, where I was formally trained in fMRI and discovered my passion for quantitative analyses of cognition and behavior. So, now I am currently a fourth year Neuroscience student and my particular interests lie in computational and behavioral neuroscience with an emphasis on machine learning.

My current efforts in the kinship lab, my final year dissertation specialization, consist of meaningfully and reliably analyzing large scale datasets of rat interaction.
