Gabriel joined the CoBrA lab in 2017 as an undergraduate student in neuroscience, and is now a PhD student since January 2020.

His work focuses on the application of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques in mice, and the development of reliable analysis strategies to study neural activity. His overall thesis aims at defining markers of neural activity using fMRI that can be translated between mice and humans. He has also developed an image processing software adapted for rodent fMRI (

For himself, Gabe runs, plays guitar and writes sometimes. He also wishes he could paint. He likes peanut butter, and most strong coffees and cheeses. He likes making bread, or any preparation relying on his sourdough yeast, because yeast leverage is beautiful.
