New NBS member Michele Mastella

We welcome Michele Mastella as a new NBS member. He has joined our research group on the November 1, 2019.

Michele Mastella is a PhD student working in the field of neuromorphic embedded processing for touch as part of the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie action Innovative Training Networks - Understanding neural coding of touch as enabling technology for prosthetics and robotics (NeuTouch). Michele has received his bachelor and master degree in Electronics Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy. His main interests are analog circuit design, neural networks and information processing. During his PhD Michele will design, simulate, fabricate and characterize neuromorphic circuits for spike-based computation of tactile sensory data and evalute network performances in close collaboration with the research themes focussing on computational neuroscience and sensor development. To facilitate this collaboration he will conduct various visits to partner institutions of the Innovative Training Network.
