My research field is Computational Neuroscience. I use mathematical and computational tools to contribute to neuron and brain studies.
It is of particular interest to me how dynamics of neural activity is shaped by low-level processes such as single cell properties, network architecture, plasticity of connections between cells, etc. I am working on both theoretical and collaborative (directly related to experiments) types of projects. I have worked on applications in auditory system, odor coding in the olfactory system, emergence of oscillations in noisy networks and others.
Currently, my main focus is on questions of temporal processing in the auditory system, and on properties of stochastic neuronal models.
