I was previously postdoc in the Psychology Department of the University of Münster (Germany), under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Fred Hamker and a PhD student at Inria Nancy (France), in the Cortex lab headed by Dr. Frédéric Alexandre.
My research interests focus on computational neuroscience (basal ganglia, hippocampus, dopaminergic system) and neuro-informatics (neuro-simulator ANNarchy). I am also interested in machine learning, especially the recent advances in deep reinforcement learning and its application to robotics.

ANNarchy (Artificial Neural Networks architect) is a general-purpose parallel neuro-simulator for rate-coded or spiking neural networks.
Deep neural networks and their applications.
Modeling the dopaminergic system (VTA, SNc), its afferences and its influence on the basal ganglia, prefrontal cortex and hippocampus.
