Research Interests

  • Our research approach is highly interdisciplinary and makes use of novel nanotechnologies, cutting-edge two-photon microscopy, and CMOS electronics to help dissect how brain circuits compute - specifically the cortex. Our interests are broad and span method development, fundamental neuroscience, and novel nanoelectronic systems. We focus on a range of biological questions ranging from probing the fundamental biophysical features that influence single neuron computation, dendritic signaling in behavior, population coding during behavior, and novel technology development.
