Simon is an IAESTE intern with a background in engineering physics and biomedical engineering from Chalmers University of Technology.

He is aiming at automatizing and optimizing the process of selecting stimulation parameters such as active electrodes and current amplitudes in DBS.

simona leserri

Master student

simona.leserri --at-- epfl.ch

For her Master's thesis Simona is using tractography to expand on the therapeutic role of DBS in treatment-resistant depression.

As her previous studies at Politecnico di Torino and EPF Lausanne, this work aims at studying the link between brain functions and behavior, and how such link can be modified through neurotechnologies.
