I received my Master's degree in Physics from the University of Pisa in 2010. I worked on the field of the foundations of quantum mechanics for the preparation of my degree thesis. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at the Biorobotics Institute of the Scuola Superiore S.Anna of Pisa. My research topics are: Nonlinear Time Series Analysis, Neural Dynamics, Post-Stroke Neurorehabilitation, Neuroprostehetics.
