Who am I?

I am a senior researcher at the Center of Neuroprosthetics of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. With more than 12 years of experience in brain-machine interaction, computational neuroscience, and machine learning. My research is aimed at the conception of technologies that allow fruitful interaction between human and intelligent machines; with special focus on understanding the neural correlates of human cognition and developing methods for endowing artificial devices with the capability to adapt to their user’s goals, preferences and capabilities.

Highly interested on the translation of emerging technologies onto applications at service of society, I am chair of the IEEE working group on standards for brain-machine interfacing and executive-in-residence at the Geneva Cente for Security Policy. Furthermore, I am actively involved in outreach activities for the general public on topics related to emerging emerging technologies and their societal impact.
