During my BSc degree I learned fundamentals concepts of computer science engineering: strong mathematical knowledge and foundation of hardware and software development.
During my MSc degree I focused my curriculum in computer science related to biology: Artificial Neural Network, Genetic Systems and Programming, Bio-inspired Adaptive Machines and Bioinformatics. I decided to concentrate my studies on the field of Computational Neuroscience and I joined the Laboratory of Neural Microcircuitry under the supervision of Prof. Henry Markram.
