I am a researcher working in computational neuroscience. My current work deals with understanding the origin of oscillations and temporal coding in neuronal networks. In particular, I am interested in the role that the distribution of synapses across the dendritic tree and the temporal statistics of the synaptic activity play in network function. Other research interests include: correlation structure in complex spiking neuron networks; dynamics and graph theoretical properties of spatially embedded networks; rate models derived from the spike dynamics of neuronal networks and individual neurons; pattern formation in spiking networks and neural field models; thalamo-cortical processing; persistent activity in networks with strong synapses; winner-take-all models as models for decision-making.
