Maurizio De Pittà
Maurizio De Pittà is a Scientist at the Krembil Research Institute and an External Scientific Member at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics in Bilbao (Spain). He holds a Master’s degree in Electronic Engineering and Bioengineering from the University of Pisa (Italy) and a Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering from Tel Aviv University (Israel). Maurizio pursued his graduate training in Physics of Complex Systems at the eponymous laboratory under the supervision of the late Prof. Eshel Ben-Jabob, developing expertise in computational biology of intracellular calcium signaling. Later, he pursued postdoctoral training at INRIA Rhone-Alpes (France) and the University of Chicago (USA) with Dr. Nicolas Brunel, working on modeling neuron-astrocyte bidirectional signaling. Before moving to the Krembil, Maurizio was a ‘la Caixa’ Junior Leader at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) in Bilbao (Spain). He also serves as Principal Investigator in the H2020 ASTROTECH European Training Network and the Spanish Network for Clinical Systems’ Neurosciences (CliSyNe).
