Research Interests

My research interests lie in mathematical neuroscience. My research focuses on developing mathematical analyses of networks of neurons and using the resulting tools to probe the function of networks in the brain.

Currently, this research is centered around three main goals.
  1. development of analytical tools to estimate neuronal connectivity patterns from simultaneous recordings of neuronal activity
  2. development of approaches to distill connectivity patterns down to their key features and study how these features influence network behavior
  3. development of mathematical tools to study response properties of neurons

The research section contains more information as well as a publication list.


The teaching section lists current and past courses. In addition to regular classroom teaching, this section describes the Math Insight web site that I have developed.
