Summary:
My professional experience in the "new" field of the white matter analysis led me to always try to push the furthest my research. Im highly competitive and that is why the study of the brain is my ideal subject.
Im actually responsible for the neuroimagery on two grants, one on the memory and Alzheimer disease and the other one on the functional organization of the frontal pole.
Concerning my goals, Im looking for a new position either in London, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts or California to work on the relation between the brain connectivity and the behavior.

Specialties
Neuropsychology: Reaction time paradigms and clinical assessment of attention, visuo spatial neglect, frontal lobe.
Neuroimagery: DTI-tractography, advanced tractography, resting state connectivity, voxel based morphometry, cortex thickness analysis, electro Encephalography, advanced normalization for intersubjects variability analysis, fMRI.
