My networks

I'm mixing data science with wildlife biology for innovative animal behavioural analysis.

With a biological and computer science professional and research background (MSc in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution, and an on-going MSc in Data Science), my scientific interest shifted from looking to how animals relate (e.g., cooperation, dominance, networking) to how to improve the way we look at it. I'm puzzled by recent advances in technology through Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how they can be applied to the field of behavioural ecology to ease and improve our research significantly.

My current work and research aim to automatize video analysis on the reproductive behaviour of the sociable weaver (Philetairus socius) with the application of AI and Deep Learning techniques, while finding cutting-edge ML-related solutions to long-term data management and analysis.
