Antonio Oliveira Fonseca


Antonio is a Ph.D. candidate working with David van Dijk in the Neuroscience Department. Before joining the Van Dijk Lab, he obtained a bachelor's degree in robotics engineering and a master's in microelectronics. Antonio worked on software development for mining robots and, most recently, he worked on applying machine learning and signal processing techniques to investigate behavior in developing animals. Currently, he is interested in using Deep Learning to model brain dynamics in mesoscopic calcium imaging data and what it can tell us about cognitive processes. When he is not thinking about biological or artificial neuronal networks, Antonio enjoys rock climbing and hiking (most often doing both on the same trip).
