I am a Ph.D. student of computational neuroscience with a background in biomedical engineering and software development. My primary research interest is the development of reduced neuron models to capture the effects of morphology on neuron electrophysiology and network behavior. Investigations are performed with the help of custom computational models written with NEURON, Python, and the C family of languages, using detailed 3D reconstructions of neurons imaged with light and confocal microscopy.
