Riccardo Volpi

Ph.D. student.


I started my Ph.D. in 2016, after graduating (summa cum laudae) in Bioengineering (Neuroengineering curriculum). I am interested in application of Deep Neural Networks, especially to biological data. I am currently working on RENVISION project (https://www.renvision-fp7.eu/), modeling Retinal Ganglin Cells' firing rates with Restricted Boltzmann Machines and Deep Belief Networks, in order to extract high level features from neural data.
