I am interested in how the intrinsic and synaptic properties of individual neurons shape population dynamics. I am enthusiastic about finding dynamical mechanisms leading to reliable neural responses despite variability in the intrinsic currents and network architectures, and investigating how mechanisms of synaptic and intrinsic homeostasis of individual neurons interact on the network level. In order to address these questions, I am using electrophysiological and computational approaches.
