I am interested in understanding the small but fundamental pieces of the big puzzle that exists within the Neurosciences. Either by directly working on those subjects, like solving the remaining questions towards ionic channels dynamics to explain diverse observations that do not fit the current models, or indirectly, by learning and improving imaging techniques and data processing and modelling. Always trying to bring a little bit of what I love from physics into the other science fields and questions.
