Assistant professor, physiology and biophysics
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, and a faculty member of the Graduate Programs in Neuroscience and Molecular and Cellular Biology. My lab studies how the brain encodes the external sensory environment, and uses sensory information to coordinate movements of the body. To do this, we record and manipulate activity in neural circuits of the fruit fly, Drosophila. I am also broadly interested in computational methods for analyzing and visualizing neural data.
