About

My research aim is to understand the way neural circuits adapt their activity and structure to achieve goals. I am currently a post-doc in the Briggman lab at the National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, MD, USA). Here I use two-photon microscopy, electron microscopy and high-speed video capture to study neural circuits underlying vision and adaptive behavior in zebrafish. I received my PhD in 2012 from the University of Sussex (Brighton, UK), where I developed a multielectrode technique for monitoring neural circuits in an intact invertebrate brain.
