Danilo Benozzo

Short bio

Danilo Benozzo is a PhD student in Computer Science at the doctoral school in Information and Communication Technology (University of Trento, Italy). He received his master's degree in bioengineering from the University of Padova (Italy) defending the thesis with title “Deconvolution algorithm optimization in DSC-MRI”. His research activity is in the field of neuroinformatics focusing in particular on the analysis of functional brain data using machine learning algorithms. Nowadays, neuroscience is showing interest in the application of machine learning methods to analyze neuroimaging data and an example of this trend is brain decoding. Brain decoding aims to study stimulus-related brain activity in order to establish a link between activation patterns and related external stimuli. His research is mainly focused on some brain connectivity measures and the study of interactions between brain regions by means of Bayesian nonparametric relational model.
