Research Interests

I am interested in homeostasis and how regulation of single neuron characteristics affects the behaviour and stability of networks. I am currently modelling the effect of Nitric Oxide (NO), a signalling molecule generated by MNTB neurons following synaptic stimulation and which modulates ion channels. I am interested in developing a biologically grounded model of how neurons sense and respond to changes in activity.
