Michele GiuglianoProfessor at Antwerp University

MG graduated in Electronic Engineering in 1997 at the University of Genova, Italy, and in 2001 received a PhD in Bioengineering and Computational Neuroscience from the Polytechnic of Milan, Italy. He was then awarded by the Human Frontiers Science Program Organisation with a long-term fellowship to pursue training as postdoc in cellular electrophysiology at the Institute of Physiology of the University of Bern (Switzerland), working with Prof. Hans-Rudolf Luescher and Prof. Stefano Fusi. In 2005, he became junior group-leader in the experimental lab of Prof. Henry Markram at the Brain Mind Institute of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne.

In 2008, he was appointed faculty at the University of Antwerp (Belgium) where he became full professor in 2016, taking over the Theoretical Neurobiology lab founded by Prof. Erik De Schutter and extending its scope to interdisciplinary research in experimental neuroscience and neuroengineering. During 2013-2015, he was visiting scientist at the Neuroelectronics Flanders Institute at IMEC, Leuven and also served other visiting academic positions at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne and at the University of Sheffield, UK.
