The field of neural coding studies the relationship between statistical invariances of real-world phenomena and their corresponding neural representations. My PhD project focuses on neural coding with synthesized reality to explore internal representations of artificial and biological agents using well-controlled yet ecologically-valid stimuli. It aims to understand the emergence and utilization of internal representations in the brain.

As for myself, I have double master’s degrees in artificial intelligence and cognitive neuroscience with cum laude and my doctorate is funded by a personal toptalent fellowship. I spend my summers road tripping the Atlantic coast and my winters snowboarding the Alps.
