News & Highlights


15.7.19 I wrote an editorial to cap the Focus Feature on Topological Neuroscience in the journal Network Neuroscience. Go have a look, there are quite a few interesting contributions!

21.5.19 I visited the brain Dynamics Lab at Stanford to work with these great folks and give a short crash course on TDA.

17.5.19 I was very happy to teach at Lake Como Complex Networks School. Slides available here (lecture 1 and 2).


22.4.19 - WoW! The Royal Society Publishing blog has posted a Q&A interview on our 2014 “homological scaffold” paper in Interface!

20.4.19 - “Spectral and topological analyses of the cortical representation of the head position: Does hypnotizability matter?” is now published on Brain&Behaviour. You can find it online here.

12.3.19 - I had the pleasure to talk about complexity and brain connectivity in front of broad audience at Circolo dei Lettori in the context of the Brain Awareness Week 2019. Slides are available here (without videos though).

6.3.19 - I am giving a talk at IGC Lisbon on the relevance of TDA for biological sciences! Slides will be posted here.

25.2.19 - Our paper on spectral and topological features of EEG during head rotation was accepted on Brain&Behaviour! Preprint available on Bioarxiv here.

22.2.19 - My paper with Sam Scarpino on the predictability of epidemic outbreak is published on Nature Communications. Check it out here!.

20.2.19 - New website updated, finally!

26.01.19 - I gave a crash course on Topological Data Analysis at the Applied Machine Learning Days in Lausanne. Slides and notebooks are available here.
