I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Molecular and Statistical Biophysics sector of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, where I joined prof. Alessandro Laio's group in January 2015.
In our group, we are currently exploring several applications of a new clustering method to biological data sets. My research activity focuses on using this method to achieve new insights in the analysis of brain imaging data. In particular, I am currently focusing on the development of Coherence Density Peak Clustering, an analysis tool to detect short-lived patterns of activity in fMRI data.
Before joining SISSA, I earned a Master degree and a PhD in Physics, both from the University of Turin. As a PhD student, I focused on the links between measurements, correlations and decoherence in quantum mechanics.
