Riccardo Marrocchio is a Postgraduate Research Student at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research.

Riccardo obtained his BSc in Physics at the “University of Rome La Sapienza” in 2014 and his MSc in Physics, with a focus on the physics of biosystems, at the “University of Rome Tor Vergata” in 2018. During his studies, he had the opportunity to develop various analytical and computational techniques to build mathematical models of complex biological systems, in particular of neuronal networks and of hearing system. During his master thesis he worked in the “Nonlinear Physics and Mathematical Modelling Laboratory” at the Campus Bio-Medico University, in Rome, on the reconstruction of functional and effective connectivity of neural networks from calcium data.

In September 2018 he joined the Signal Processing Audio & Hearing Group of the ISVR at the University of Southampton as a PhD student. He is working on the development of a model of the micromechanics of the cochlea, in order to understand what are the physical mechanism necessary to explain the active mechanism of hearing, responsible for the high sensitivity and frequency selectivity of the human ear.
