I am an engineer, turned, neuroscientist, turned data scientist. I am a founding director of SPiKE.AI, where we provide machine learning services to innovating companies.
I was a research associate in theDepartment of Clinical and Experimental Epilepsy at University College London, Institute of Neurology. I worked on mutations affecting ion channels (mainly potassium channels) and how they might affect synaptic transmission.
Before this post-doc, and during my PhD and first post-doc at Imperial College London, I investigated the basic biophysical constraints faced by axons, and how these constraints have shaped the trade-offs made by neurons. I investigated these tradeoffs using stochastic simulations based on biophysical data found in literature. The simulations are carried on using Modigliani, our in-house stochastic simulator.
I have quit my position as a post-doc at UCL, and decided to move back to France.
I have started a new postdoc at University College London. I will be doing experimental work on neurons, hoping to check some of the hypotheses that emerged from my work during my PhD and the previous post-doc.
The corrections have been approved! I am now officially a doctor in computational neuroscience. Hooray for me!
My paper, Axonal Noise as a Source of Synaptic Variability is published!
I passed my viva (oral exam) for my PhD. It lasted 3h30, and was actually a very pleasurable experience. I need to make some minor corrections to my thesis.
After a 2 weeks long rush, the thesis is finally submitted. I need sleep!
I have started my first post-doc at Imperial College London.
