Research

How do populations of neurons work together to generate a coherent perception of the world?

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow with Anne Churchland at CSHL, investigating multisensory perception in mice.

My Ph.D. research with Ed Callaway at the Salk investigated cell types and circuits in the visual cortex of mice. I employed in vivo intrinsic signal imaging, 2p calcium imaging, optogenetics, extracellular electrophysiology, and various tracing methods. My dissertation research showed that mice have visual areas that can compute complex motion, and that genetically- and hodologically-defined cell types in layer 5 of visual cortex are functionally different.
