SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am particularly interested in the level of the cell and the circuits above it. This is why I want to gain expertise in a blend of electrophysiology, imaging and molecular biology. I am convinced that recent and future developments in these three approaches will be the most powerful tools to illuminate the physiology of the brain.
