Francesca Melozzi, PhD student


I have studied Physics, both bachelor and master, at University of Bologna (Alma Mater Studiorum), in Italy.
During my master I had the opportunity to do the research for the thesis at the Institut de Neuroscience des Systèmes.
The collaboration with the INS team went on from June 2014 to February 2015; in this period I reinforced my programming skills, I thoroughly understood the most recent arguments on resting state, reaching the capability of simulating the whole brain dynamics starting from experimental information on the brain structure.
In March 2015 I took my Physics Master degree with honors and at the present I am a PhD student at INS.
I am working on the virtualizion of the mouse brain using the connectome obtained by the Allen Institute for Brain Science.
