After successfully defending my thesis on the application of functional ultrasound imaging (fUSi) to assess brain function in physiological and pathological preclinical models, I joined the Urban Lab at NERF as a post-doctoral researcher, funded by The Transatlantic Networks of Excellence Program of the Leducq Foundation.

Using functional ultrasound imaging (fUSi), a modality recently developed to image whole brain functions at high spatio-temporal resolution, I investigate on both alteration and reorganization of brain functions induced by ischemic stroke, a pathology that deeply impacts our society (2nd cause of death and a leading cause of long-term disability in humans). Aside to the development of fUSi and new protocols, I study new strategies to protect brain function and tissue damage against stroke injuries which aim to be applied in translational human pilot studies.
