Who are you and what is your background before embarking on a PhD at Université Côte d'Azur ?

I am a Theoretical and Computational Physicist graduated from the University of Milan Bicocca. My academic background is rooted in mathematics and statistics, with a keen focus on numerical simulations. Additionally, I have specialized in Machine Learning algorithms and Neural Networks, applying them to the analysis of Big Data. Since the choice of my Master thesis I have always been interested in understanding how the human brain works so I decided to pursue a PhD in the field of Brain Computer Interface.
