E055 How Do Brain-Computer Interfaces Work And What Can They Achieve? Career In BCIs As a PhD

Dr. Davide Valeriani is a senior machine learning scientist at Neurable, a Boston-based startup developing EEG-based brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) for enhancing focus and controlling external devices. He obtained his bachelor and master degrees in computer engineering from the University of Parma (Italy), and his PhD in computing and electronic systems from the University of Essex (UK), developing collaborative BCIs for improving group decision-making. Between 2018 and 2021, he was a postdoc at Mass Eye and Ear / Harvard Medical School, working on deep learning algorithms to diagnose dystonia from MRI data. Dr. Valeriani’s research interests are in the areas of computational neuroscience, machine learning, brain-computer interfaces and decision-making. He is also a passionate mentor, loves cooking and playing with his cat Gin.
