I am a systems neuroscientist and postdoctoral fellow at New York University Neuroscience Institute in the laboratory of Dr. Gyorgy Buzsaki.

I investigate the neural circuit mechanisms underlying learning, memory and decision making in rodents. I am particularly interested in how distributed neuronal ensembles coordinate to encode and retrieve information in support of changing behavioral demands. And, in a more global sense, how different brain areas exchange information and how do they coordinate to support complex behaviors. I believe that the key to these questions lies in understating the complex relationships between synaptic architecture, network dynamics and adaptive, flexible behavior.

To address these questions, I develop and employ cutting edge experimental and computational methods such as large-scale silicon probe recordings, close-loop optogenetic manipulation, anatomical and physiological circuit mapping, simultaneous calcium imaging and ephys, etc.
