Entered program in 2018
I am interested in mathematical modeling in neuroscience. I am working with Professor Van Savage on developing a framework to analyze neuron morphology and scaling in single neurons and neuronal networks. I am testing theoretical predictions with 3D image data from neurons in a wide range of brain regions and species including humans, rodents, reptiles, chimpanzees, tigers, elephants, and whales.
