After graduating in Neuroscience at University College London, Hana went to the University of Oxford to study for her D. Phil. with Professor J. Paul Bolam at the MRC Neuroanatomical Pharmacology Unit. Following the award of her doctorate in 2007, Hana moved to the USA to work with Professor David McCormick and Professor Nenad Sestan as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Neurobiology at the Yale University School of Medicine. In 2009, Hana returned to UCL and joined Professor Thomas Mrsic-Flogel’s Lab, and then, in 2011, Professor Angus Silver’s Lab. Hana has been a Research Fellow in the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology at UCL since 2009.
The brain gathers information about the body and the surrounding world, allowing it to build internal representations and to plan and execute movement. The cerebellum coordinates movement and learns sensorimotor relationships. Hana is interested in discovering how neural systems represent and process sensory and motor information.
Advanced 3D two-photon acousto-optic lens (AOL) microscopy methods, in vivo calcium imaging, and the use of genetic and viral techniques for labeling specific sensory and motor pathways and recording neuronal activity in behaving animals are all central to Hana's research strategy to elucidate how neurons encode sensory and motor information in defined microcircuits of the cerebellum.
