Elisabetta graduated from the Politecnico di Torino and the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and holds a Bachelor in Biomedical Engineering and a Master degree in Bioengineering with a minor in Neuroprosthetics.
Before joining our lab, Elisabetta developed her Master thesis project in the Laboratory of Neuroepigenetics “Upgraeff”, part of the Brain Mind Institute (BMI) at EPFL, where she worked on the set-up of optogenetic stimulation and tetrodes recordings to study memory in the hippocampus. Elisabetta also worked at the Campus Biotech of Geneva under the Medical Image Processing Lab (MIP:Lab), where she implemented computational tools for personalising Deep Brain Stimulation and the analysis of resting state fMRI networks for predicting cases of Parkinson’s disease.
Given her scientific interest on the application of neural prosthetics for improving people’s life and the study of their effect on neural circuits, she joined our lab as PhD student in January 2019.
