I graduated from Instituto Balseiro (IB) in Argentina as a mechanical engineer. I started my professional career working in mechanical design for the energy sector. But during that time, I developed a strong interest in coding, machine learning and neuroscience. That encouraged me to pursue a different objective.
Currently, I am doing a Master in neuroscience at IB. My focus is on development of robust spike sorting algorithms and validation in absence of ground truth. I have also developed a spike sorting algorithm called Spiky which uses machine learning to find the most likely labels for spikes using GMM and I am also working on a GUI called webSpiky to facilitate the use of Spiky.
I met Salvador Dura-Bernel and William Lytton during LASCON-VII (a summer school in computational neuroscience in Sao Paulo Brazil) where I used Netpyne on my final project to develop a morphological detailed Dentate Gyrus model. During the school, I was amazed by the kind of work Bill and Salva were doing at SUNY Downstate, so they allowed me to participate.
