I am a neuroscientist with a background in Mathematics. I am currently a research associate at the lab of Dr. Jaime de la Rocha and Dr. Albert Compte at IDIBAPS (Hospital Clinic, Barcelona). I am working at the intersection of deeplearning and neuroscience, applying Recurrent Neural Networks to investigate the computational principles underlying decision making processes in rodents.

Before coming to Barcelona I was a Marie Curie Fellow at the Centre for Neuroscience and Cognitive Systems (IIT; Rovereto, Italy) with Prof. Stefano Panzeri. It was during this period that I developed my interest for machine learning techniques applied to neuroscience. In 2018 I published my first article on this area (Molano-Mazon et al. 2018 ICLR ), where I applied Generative Adversarial Networks to generate realistic spike train patterns.

I previously worked with Prof. Rodrigo Quiroga at the Centre for Systems Neuroscience in Leicester (UK). During this period I built a 3D virtual environment for mice and set up a protocol for a decision making task. Before that, I did my PhD at Instituto de Neurociencias in Alicante (Spain) with Dr. Miguel Maravall and Dr. Luis Martínez. In the course of my PhD I acquired both computational and experimental experience (2-photon microscopy).
