Current research interests:

  • Noise-enhanced coding: Exploiting noise to enhance performance in sensory systems.
  • Pulsatility in the neuroendocrine system: How is hormonal release controlled in the brain?
  • Optimal stochastic control: What are the optimal strategies to control noisy systems?
  • Probabilistic dynamics of spiking neuronal networks: How do higher order statistics (fluctuations/correlations) affect a network stochastic dynamics?

Future research direction:

  • Biologically Inspired AI, Cognitive Computing

I am a member of the Computational Biology Group (University of Warwick, UK)

The sensory coding work is a collaboration with Prof Nigel Stocks

My oxytocin work is a collaboration with the Neural Control Systems Group (Edinburgh University, UK)

Neural Networks and Data Analysis Group (University of Rome "La Sapienza", Italy). That's where I started.
