I carried my first DSLR camera in 2011 and my view of the world has been changing since. Initially I was obsessed with sunsets, but with time I found myself repeatedly trying to capture natural motion and the dynamics of landscapes and cityscapes.

Photography is the passion I pursue 'on the side'. I am a full-time neuroscience researcher investigating brain networks that support visual learning. I remember when I first read a book chapter about vision, I told myself: "this is so intriguing but I don't think I'd ever want to work in the field".

I had the chance to combine my love for cameras and brains when, for a collaborative project, I photographed a 3D-printed model of a language pathway in the human brain and the photo was selected as one of the winners at the Wellcome Image Awards 2017 competition.

This website, launched in 2020, represents my passion for the visual medium. I hope it brings you as much joy as it brings me.
