applied & theoretical

I am interested on the development and evolution of the brain, which I study through mathematical modelling, magnetic resonance imaging and genetics. I have developed computational models to describe the global organisation of the sulcal anatomy of the human brain, and to simulate the gyrification of the cerebral cortex. My aim is to apply this theoretical framework to the analysis of the neuranatomical data.

My PhD project is about understanding the mechanics involved in the neocortical development. To do so, I study the gyrification of the neocortex in correlation with its structural organisation. My model is the ferret, a small mammal that has a post birth neocortical development which allows us to follow the folding pattern easily.

I am genuinely curious about brain development. For my PhD, I am studying the development of the human brain and its connectivity using magnetic resonance imaging. My aim is to relate brain development and language performance.
