Welcome to my personal home page. I'm a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Cognitive Neuroscience at Dartmouth, working with Ida Gobbini. My research focuses on familiar face perception. I'm interested in understanding the processes and the neural networks that allow our brain to be more efficient with the faces of personally familiar individuals, while creating invariant visual representations. I study these questions using psychophysics and neuroimaging techniques (fMRI and MEG), coupled with computational methods like multivariate pattern analyses.
Besides my research, I'm deeply enamored with mathematics, computer science, and artificial intelligence. I'm an avid Python user and an enthusiast for open science.
You can find me on Twitter (@MatteoVdOC), GitHub, and Linkedin. Here's my updated CV and my Google Scholar page.
