I completed my PhD in 2008 under the supervision of Etienne Koechlin. After a series of postdoc at Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris) and various institutions in Barcelona, I am now a Ramón y Cajal investigator at CRM. I have received various postdoctorate fellowships such as the Marie Curie IEF and the Jovenes Investigadores from the Mineco. My current research interests are towards understanding the neural basis of perception and decision-making through a combination of modelling, psychophysics, and data analysis of behavioral and neural recodings.
