Research Interests

I am interested in the neural substrates of perception and cognition, and in particular the role of brain oscillations in cognitive processes. My PhD focuses on theta and gamma oscillations in the rodent hippocampus. These rhythms are thought to play an important role in spatial cognition and working memory. Currently, I am developing theoretical models of phase codes in hippocampal place cells in order to investigate the resulting population dynamics and their role in spatial cognition. The importance of phase coupling for information transfer between the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex is also a central part of my PhD project.
