I use the connectivity map of the Drosophila larva nervous system to crack the function of various neuronal circuits in a mechanistic way. To do so, I develop tools to quantify structural changes in circuits during development, learning or after mutations, and computational models to formalize the functional role of those circuits.
Thank you for visiting my website. I am a neuroscientist studying the structure-function relationship in the nervous system in the University of Cambridge's Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience (PDN) and Medical Research Council Laboratory for Molecular Biology (MRC LMB). I have particular research interests in understanding the functional assembly of this complex organ and unraveling general rules of neuronal patterning and development.
