With the Brains for Brains Award, the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience honors young scientists who pursue a career in computational neuroscience and whose publication portfolio reveals outstanding merit at a very early stage of their careers. The award is endowed with € 2000 and enables young scientists to visit the Bernstein Conference as well as exclusive visits to laboratories in the field of computational neuroscience in Germany.
Simone Azeglio is the tenth recipient of this award in the line of outstanding young scientists from all over the world, many of whom now run their own laboratories. Simone Azeglio holds a master’s degree in physics of Complex Systems from the University of Turin, Italy. Currently he is working as a research engineer at the Institut de l’audition of the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France. Towards the end of his bachelor studies, he first encountered neuroscience at a summer school in Ottawa, Canada. Since then, he holds a passion for the combination of physics and neuroscience. Today Azeglio is especially fascinated by the methodological advances in experimental neuroscience on the one hand (e.g., Neuropixels) and in data analytics on the other hand, in particular machine learning and AI technologies. He is convinced that this bears great potential for future scientific insights. In autumn he will begin his PhD research in Paris in a collaborative project of research groups at L’Institut de la vision and École normale supérieure.
“I am very honored to receive the award. This will give me the opportunity to actively contribute to the conference and to present my work to an expert audience. I am very much looking forward to intensive scientific discussions at the conference and during my lab visits.” Simone Azeglio will visit the Bernstein Center in Berlin and meet researchers from the groups of Drs. Radoslaw Martin Cichy and Jens Kremkow.
The “Brains for Brains” Award in Computational Neuroscience will be presented on September 16, 2022 at the international Bernstein Conference in Berlin
