SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:
I would like to gain a greater understanding of the molecular level mechanisms and activities of the brain and their relationship to the larger system level function. I am interested in gaining an in-depth understanding of the current modeling methods for normal neuronal behavior, as well as the anomalous behavior that lead to neurological disease. Ultimately, my goal is to be able to apply these techniques to help develop new therapies for prevention and treatment of neurological disorders.
