I am a neuroscientist, currently working with Albert Cardona in the Comparative and Experimental Connectomics Lab at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology and University of Cambridge. My specialty lies in the analysis and modelling of anatomical data to crack the function of various neuronal circuits in a mechanistic way. To do so, I design experiments and develop tools to quantify structural changes in circuits during development, learning, or after mutations. Finally, I use the data to develop computational models that formalise the structure-function relationship of those circuits.
In general, the conceptual drive that guides my research as a neuroscientist is to understand the functional architecture of the human mind. Unfortunately, this will most likely not happen during my lifetime. Instead, my career vision is to acquire a mechanistic understanding of the functional assembly and life-long plasticity of a neuronal circuit that is known to be involved in a higher-cognitive process.
