The goal of my research is to understand the functional organization and dynamic coordination of sensorimotor networks underlying learned, skilled behaviors.
My labs research will address the question of how distributed neural circuits gives rise to coordinated behaviors. To address this question, my lab combines multi-scale electrophysiology with optical manipulations in reaching rodents and advanced computational methods to investigate the functional organization and dynamic coordination of sensorimotor networks. I also developp software to analyze this data, including novel machine learning algorithms and deep learning aproaches.
