Research Interests

Synaptic plasticity is believed to be the main principle underlying learning and memory storage, having a central impact on neural information processing. During my PhD I studied short and long-term plasticity under the supervision of Dr. Mark van Rossum (UoE) and Dr. Per Jesper Sjostrum (UCL, McGill).
