Research

 The overarching goal of my research is to better understand how the mammalian neocortex processes and stores incoming sensory information. To this end, my lab employs large-scale two-photon calcium imaging, multi-unit electrophysiology, and optogenetic manipulation of neural activity in behaving mice. We then use computational approaches to analyze and interpret the data collected from large populations of neurons. For more information on current projects, please refer to my lab page.
