Danilo Benozzo works at the Department of Brain and Behavioral Science at the University of Pavia as a researcher in computational neuroscience. He joined the Egidio d’Angelo’s Lab in 2023 to conduct research on cellular and micro-circuit modeling, with a primary focus on studying the cerebellum’s role in both physiological and pathological conditions. This research falls under the MNESYS project: ‘A multiscale integrated approach to the study of the nervous system in health and disease.
Previously, he held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Information Engineering at the University of Padova. He studied resting-state brain dynamics using Dynamical Causal Model and Granger-based methods with fMRI data. Prior to that, he worked as a research fellow at the Behavioral Neurophysiology Lab at Sapienza, University of Rome. His work there involved developing and applying mathematical models to identify neural correlates of behaviors from neural population recordings.
He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Trento and a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Padova.
