Research Summary

I am an experimental neurobiologist, interested in how the intrinsic electrical properties of neurons, (e.g. ion channel kinetics and distribution) can generate and propagate distinct firing patterns. Ultimately, I seek to understand how diversity in the action potential timing and waveform can affect the local network (cortical oscillations) and neurotransmitter release, and how an imbalance in these features can cascade into neurological disorders. 

To this end, I use a combination of electrophysiological and imaging techniques, including in-vitro patch-clamp and local field potential recordings (in slices and neuronal cultures), optogenetics and live-imaging fluorescence microscopy.
