I am currently working on the statistical analysis of human cardiovascular rhythms. I study, together with my supervisor Dr Barbieri, stochastic models of cardiovascular control where heart beat intervals are governed by a history-dependent point process. This framework allows for new definitions of heart rate and heart rate variability based on the statistical properties of the point process.
I am also interested in non-invasive Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) and Event-Related Potentials (ERPs). In the past I have been a senior research officer at the BCI group of the University of Essex, UK, working with Prof Poli on ERP-based BCIs.
During my PhD, I worked on the processing of neural signals recorded from invasive peripheral nerve interfaces for the control of a robotic arm. The decoding algorithm I developed was used in a pioneering implant of a neurally controlled hand by a human amputee (explanatory video in Italian).
I was recently appointed Lecturer in Computational Intelligence at the University of Essex, UK.
