Michele Allegra's CV
Before joining SISSA, I earned a Master degree and a PhD in Physics, both from the University of Turin. During my PhD I worked in collaboration with the Quantum Science Lab at the I.S.I. Foundation in Turin, under the supervision of Dr. Paolo Giorda, and I spent one semester at the Research Laboratory of Electronics at M.I.T. in Cambridge, Massachusetts, under the supervision of Prof. Seth Lloyd. As a PhD student, I was mostly interested in the links between measurements, correlations and decoherence in quantum mechanics. My global approach was to use several information-theoretic quantifiers to analyze the effects of decoherence in physically relevant scenarios, and assess the amount of correlations and coherence present in different systems. Upon completion of my PhD, I decided to move towards more biologically-oriented research, complying with a strong fascination for biology. Although quantum information and neuroscience look very different, these two fields actually share many basic tools, including core concepts of statistics and information theory.
