Research: 

My research is in applying mathematical modeling to further our understanding of the brain. My modeling work addresses different spatial and temporal scales of brain function, from single neuron spiking, to activity of large-scale spiking neuron networks, to networks of interacting neuronal populations. A consistent theme of my research is to utilize mathematical modeling to understand the physiological mechanisms generating experimentally observed neural activity, thus providing the neuroscience community with quantitative support of experimental hypotheses and a rigorous theoretical framework for exploring and developing experimentally-testable predictions.
