I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford (Department of Psychiatry), currently based at Aarhus University (CFIN/MIB). With a background in Biomedical Engineering and further specialisation in neuroimaging, since the beginning of my PhD degree my research has been very much focused in exploring the neural drivers or brain mechanisms underlying a balanced brain. We propose using computational connectomics (whole-brain computational modelling and network analysis) to fingerprint the intricate structural and functional connections of the human brain, in health and disease.

In addition to studying different neuropsychiatric disorders, I have growing interest to use such methodologies to elucidate the neural mechanisms of taste, olfaction and processing of music. Furthermore, these novel methods can potentially be used to characterise how multi-level sensory inputs may be used not only as potential biomarkers of disease, but also, as promising tools to rebalance the oscillatory behaviour of brain networks.
