Research Interests

My research aims to contribute to a better understanding of the dynamics of brain states at the boundary of consciousness, such as the process of falling asleep, clinically impaired consciousness, and sedation. My methods include graph theory analysis of connectivity networks, mainly obtained from EEG recordings.

Other topics I am passionate about include brain-computer interfaces, artificial intelligence, and the hard problem of consciousness.
