SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

After mainly having tried cognitive neuroscience research methods thus far, I am eager to get to know more about brain metabolism using other techniques. My goal is to proceed from systems down to cell and synaptic levels of analysis. Particularly inspiring for this plan was a course on Cellular and Molecular Physiology taught by Boulpaep and Sigworth at Yale University.
