about me

I’m a computer science PhD student at Goethe University, working in the field of cognitive computational neuroscience. I’m both part of Gemma Roig’s lab and the Ernst Strüngmann Institute for Neuroscience (in Cooperation with Max Planck Society) in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

My current research focuses on building and studying computational models (deep neural networks) to understand how humans and machines abstract semantic knowledge when presented with multimodal sources of information.

I also advocate for reproducible and open science. I enjoy contributing to open-source projects and developing research software related to machine learning and data science more broadly.

The Turing Way: A guide to reproducible, ethical and collaborative research practices

This talk gives an introduction to The Turing Way and how to get involved with the project.

Creating a Jupyter Book with The Turing Way

Jupyter Book is an open source project for building publication-ready online books with computational files. The Turing Way is a community-led book project on learning computational skills, which is hosted online as a Jupyter Book. In this tutorial, you will learn about the collaborative nature of both projects and create your own Jupyter Book using files and chapters from The Turing Way as examples.
