Matthieu Vanni

Dr. Matthieu Vanni is a post-doctoral fellow from Tim Murphy’s group in the Brain Research Center at the University of British Columbia. His current research interests include functional connectivity mapping using neurophotonics approaches such as optogenetics and in vivo two-photons microscopy.

Vanni earned his PhD from the Université de Montréal and two MSc degrees in neuroscience and computer science from Ecole Normale Supérieure and Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris.
