After obtaining my Bachelor Degree in Psychological Sciences from the University of Milano-Bicocca I moved to the University of Padova to pursue a M.Sc. in Cognitive Neuroscience. During the second year of my Master I was awarded an Erasmus+ scholarship to carry out my Master Thesis in the laboratory of Dr. Francesca Cacucci at UCL. I spent 12 months in London training in in-vivo electrophysiology and investigating the presence and the properties of boundary responsive neurons in the dorsal subiculum of the mouse. In April 2017 I was awarded a prestigious Marie Curie Fellowship for Early-Stage Researchers to carry out my PhD in the Memory Dynamics Lab, as part of the M-GATE ITN Project. Through a combination of high density recordings and advanced neural probes I'm currently interested in understanding the contribution of different hippocampal subcircuits to memory encoding and consolidation.
