He 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.
His research interests focus on computational neuroscience (basal ganglia, hippocampus, dopaminergic system) and neuro-informatics (neuro-simulator ANNarchy). He is also interested in machine learning, especially the recent advances in deep reinforcement learning and its potential contribution to robotics.

ANNarchy (Artificial Neural Networks architect) is a neuro-simulator for rate-coded or spiking neural networks. The core of the library is written in C++ and distributed using openMP or CUDA. It provides an interface in Python for the definition of the networks.
