Introduction
I am a young researcher interested in cephalopod novel and convergent traits, and more particularly in the evolutionary processes behind their complex neural system and behaviour. I have a Master’s Degree in Marine Ecology and Organismal Biology. I am currently working as a PhD student in the Laurent Department at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt, Germany. My goal is to generate and culture cephalopods transgenic lines, to image and control neural circuits, using genetically encoded calcium/voltage indicators and optogenetic tools. My fields of interest cover different areas: from marine biology to astrophysics, from photography to acting. I am also a musician and a scientific illustrator.

The Antarctic silverfish Pleuragramma antarctica is a key species in the Southern Ocean ecosystem, and it is potentially threatened by the climate change affecting Antarctic ecosystems. Assessing the possible exposure to similar or different environmental conditions at early life stages and gathering information about connectivity or segregation be...
