Short Bio & Technologies
During the high-school I get interested in computer and I learned on my own to code in some programming languages from C to Java.
In the bachelor years I start coding in Python and entered in a student association (POuL, Politecnico Open unix Labs), that aims to promote Free Software in the university giving courses and lectures about programming, GNU/Linux system administration and open source projects.
I was vice-president in the year 2015-2016 and remained active in the following years, organizing activities and giving lectures, in particular for the annual “Python Courses”.
After the bachelor I spent a year following courses from the master in Computer Science Engineering, with particular interest for functional programming and compiler courses.
Then I attended a Master in Electronic technologies for Biomedical Engineering, coding Python, C++ and sometimes Clojure in the spare time.
In 2019 I completed the studies with a thesis on Computational Neurosciences, developing a biologically-inspired whisker system for a virtual mouse inside the Neurorobotics Platform, a software framework part of the Human Brain Project infrastructure. The work comprehended the use of ROS to develop robotic controllers and the NEST Simulator to define and interact with Spiking Neural Networks.
From 2019 to the first half of 2020 I worked as researcher at University of Pavia, developing spiking neural networks models and experiments for cerebellar motor learning.
