Roman received his Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Computational Science and Engineering from ETH Zuerich, Switzerland. Afterwards, he did his doctoral studies at the Institute for Neuroinformatics (INI) at ETH and University Zuerich, working on simulations of cortical development. He then joined Marcus Kaiser's lab in September 2013, where he continues working on the subject of brain development.
Roman's research interests are in computational and developmental neuroscience. He currently analyses and models, based on computational and statistical tools, how the brain structure evolves during development, in order to investigate how particular neural features and neurodevelopmental diseases arise.
