Research Interests

I am interested in understanding how cortical network dynamics drives behavior in humans and non-human animals.  To achieve this goal I believe it is first necessary to have a firm understanding of the repertoire of dynamical states which cortical networks can exhibit. Therefore I study spontaneous dynamics in networks as well as the response of networks to inputs, through numerical simulation and analytical calculation. 

In particular I am interested in knowing how the details of the network connectivity affect the dynamical state, and how this connectivity is related to synaptic plasticity and hence learning and memory.
