Stefano grew up in Bristol, Rhode Island. He received his B.S. from McGill University in 2007, and Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 2014, where he studied the molecular mechanisms underlying synapse strengthening in hippocampal neurons. He is interested in understanding how learning-related sensory experiences shape functional and structural plasticity in neural circuits. He enjoys rock climbing in his free time outside the lab.
