Scientific Focus

My research focuses on understanding the underlying computational principles of visual intelligence of humans and artificial systems, with the aim of developing a general artificial intelligence framework. Such general artificial intelligence system, is fundamental to design machine models that mimic or surpass human performance in specific domains, and that can automatically learn new tasks. To this end, I develop computational models using deep learning and state-of-the-art artificial intelligence algorithms and use those to explain behavioural and brain data, including fMRI and EEG.
