Welcome to my personal home page. I'm currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at UC Berkeley working in Jack Gallant's lab.
I received a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at Dartmouth, working with Ida Gobbini and Jim Haxby. My research focused on familiar face perception, 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.
"If people do not believe that mathematics is simple,
it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is."

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter.
Try again. Fail again. Fail better."
