The possibility to create and store ordered sequences of events is at the base of our ability to form episodic memories. However, the cellular and circuit mechanisms governing these processes are still unclear.
In April 2018 I was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship for Early-Stage Researchers to study hippocampal temporal dynamics, under the guidance of Prof. Francesco Battaglia and Dr. Federico Stella (as part of the M-GATE ITN Project; http://www.mgate.eu).
My research interest lies in the ability of cortical neurons to integrate information at multiple spatial and temporal scales. I combine state-of-the-art technical and computational tools to study the dorsal CA1 circuit of the hippocampus, where place cells are known to organize in complex assemblies depending on intra- and extra-hippocampal information routes.
