Cognitive Visual Neuroscientist, interested in knowing more about the boundaries between conscious and non-conscious visual perception. In the past I researched about the relationship between attention, metacognition and visual awareness.

Now I am working at Progress Technologies on building an artificial intelligent assistant for the visually impaired (ShikAI project).

I enjoy science, machine learning and those experiments in cognitive neuroscience that do replicate. Just for fun I wrote a paper in collaboration with Shenjun Zhong and Javier Kreiner on “How to beat the bookies with their own numbers” which, to our surprise, raised some attention from the media.
