About me

I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the Friedrich Miescher Institute in Computational Neuroscience in the team of Friedemann Zenke.


  • (03/2023) - I received the Thesis Prize from the Graduate School of Engineering Sciences and Systems from Paris-Saclay University!
  • (02/2023) - I will attend and give a talk at the workshop on Recent advances in understanding artificial and biological neural networks in les Houches!
  • (10/2022) - Holomorphic equilibrium propagation was selected as an “Oral” at NeurIPS 2022!
  • (09/2022) - My paper on holomorphic equilibrium propagation got accepted at NeurIPS 2022!
  • (07/2022) - I was awarded a fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation! The goal of the project is to link cortical circuit motifs to there putative functions in the framework of predictive processing.
