I'm still learning.(Michelangelo, age 87)

I am an ICoN Postdoctoral Fellow at MIT working with Guangyu Robert Yang on deep learning to understand the brain. I want to model the brain with machine learning tools and develop brain inspired learning principles which could aid to increase the performance of neural networks.
I finished my Ph.D. at the Weizmann Institute of Science under supervision of Misha Tsodyks. During my Ph.D. I spent some time at Institute for Advanced Studies and at Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics.
Previously I obtained my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Physics at La Sapienza under supervision of Giorgio Parisi and Alessandro Treves (SISSA).
This website doesn't describe my current research, but it's related to things I thought about and would like to share.
