My research lies in the field of computational neuroscience. I am interested in understanding how dendrites and their integrative properties contribute to learning and memory. Towards this goal, we build mathematical and detailed biophysical models of neural cells and circuits of different brain regions and abstraction levels. We use these models to study how the anatomical and biophysical properties of dendrites contribute to memory functions.
